January StoryWalk® at Weaver

January StoryWalk® at Weaver

Our January StoryWalk® is: A Thousand White Butterflies by Jessica Betancourt-Perez & Karen Lyn Williams.

This picture book is about Isabella, a little girl who has recently come to the United States from Colombia. Isabella is feeling sad because her first day of school has been canceled due to a snowstorm, but when Isabella notices a girl playing outside she makes a new friend, despite the language barrier.

This story is mostly in English with some Spanish words sprinkled throughout. Our StoryWalk® is a self-guided reading adventure that is available everyday for all ages. Pages of a picture book are displayed in frames on a trail around the perimeter of the lawn at Weaver Library.

The goal of the StoryWalk® is to increase children’s interest in books and reading while encouraging healthy outdoor activity for all ages, and reconnecting children and adults to nature. To date, StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries, including Bermuda, Canada, England, Germany, Malaysia, Pakistan, Russia, South Korea.
