Take a StoryWalk®

Now you and your little ones can enjoy the great outdoors any time during free, self-guided reading hikes! 

In partnership with Hamilton East Public Library, each month we’ll feature a nature-based picture book on the trail for you to enjoy during a quarter-mile hike in the woods.

Books are ideal for ages 6 and under and are available all month long (rain or shine!). Don’t forget to track your participation and earn reading badges on the Beanstack app.

APRIL: "Lola Plants a Garden" by Anna McQuinn

Our April book choice celebrates April Sustainability Month and follows Lola, a young girl who reads a book of garden poems and decides to plant a garden. As you follow along with each page at Cheeney Creek Natural Area, you'll see Lola go through the process of planning and planting her garden and watching it grow!

Librarian Reading:

Join us from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday, April 5, at Cheeney Creek Natural Area for a live reading of "Lola Plants a Garden" from Allison Kartman, a librarian from Hamilton East Public Library, and be sure to grab a take-home craft, too!
