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.
On display now through November 30.
This self-guided hike around Holland Park features the children's book "A Day So Gray" by Marie Lamba. The winter-themed book celebrates the hues and comforts of a cozy winter day as a discontented girl first notices only dull grays and browns in a snowy landscape but is coaxed by her friend to look more closely. Soon, she finds orange berries, blue water, purple shadows, and more. This book showcases a warm friendship and a fresh way of seeing things transform across a snow-covered landscape.
Join Fishers Parks and Hamilton East Public Library staff for a live reading of "A Day So Gray," followed by a fun DIY sensory bottle activity from 10 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, December 1, at Holland Park.
On display December 1 through December 31.
The beginning of winter is marked by the solstice, the shortest day of the year, this year on December 21. This book explains what the winter solstice is and how it has been observed by various cultures throughout history. Many contemporary holiday traditions were borrowed from ancient solstice celebrations.
On display during Winter Wonderland, Saturday, December 4.
