The featured StoryWalk this quarter is I Am a Bird By Dana Walrath and illustrated by Jamie Kim. A boy and his father enjoy a day at the beach and see how things are connected, as a bird that can fly leads to a fly that will land, that leads to land stretching to the sea.
A StoryWalk® is an innovative way to get people of all ages out walking while reading children's picture books. Our Storywalk is located at Grand Park along the lake path in between Savannah’s Playground and the picnic pavilions. Visit the park, take a walk with your family, and read and follow the prompts on each story page.
