We have a great reading selection for our Tale Trails this year. Stories will come to life for kids as they walk the trails and read, or have read to them, pages from nature books.
June 1 - July 31: Pitter and Patter by Martha Sullivan
Follow friends Pitter and Patter, two raindrops who fall from the sky and land in different places. They go through the water cycle, meeting new aquatic and woodland friends along the way. This book ties in with the NH Public Library Summer Reading Program theme "Oceans of Possibilities." Ages 4-10
Aug. 2- Sep. 15:
Grandma Lisa's Humming, Buzzing, Chirping Garden by Lisa Doseff
With the help from her grandchildren, Grandma Lisa converts her new suburban home's yard to a habitat for wildlife. The kids delight in all the new animals visiting her yard--including bees, birds, butterflies and lightning bugs! Written in verse, this story is joyful and inspirational. We will all want a yard like Grandma Lisa's! Ages baby-12 years.
Sep. 17 - Oct. 10: Poet-Tree Tale Trail
We'll usher in fall with some of our favorite poems about the season that are posted on trees along our trails. After your walk you'll find some poetry prompts at our activity table where you may be inspired to write your own poem! All ages.
