Barriere StoryWalk®

Now Showing at Fadear Park in Barriere:

The Snow Knows by Jennifer McGrath

In this deceptively simple children’s picture book, a pair of award-winning storytellers share the joys of winter. A lyrical prose poem, The Snow Knows introduces readers of all ages to animals both domestic (a tabby cat by the wood stove) and wild (a slinking lynx; a choir of coyotes), celebrating wilderness and outdoor play.
 
With whimsical hide-and-seek illustrations, readers will love following footprints and catching a glimpse of an owl’s wing or pheasant’s feathers, suggesting what appears on the following page. A beautiful book, destined to be a perennial winter favourite, and read aloud by a crackling fire.

What is a StoryWalk® ?

A StoryWalk® is an innovative and exciting way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Pages of a story book are installed outdoors and include questions and interactions to enjoy. Follow the pages of the book and enjoy walking and talking with your children as you read the story together. Encourages literacy, connection and play!
