Barriere StoryWalk®

Now Showing at Fadear Park in Barriere:

When the Moon Comes by Paul Harbridge, illustrated by Matt James.

“The beaver flood has finally frozen perfect ice, without a bump or a ripple. For the kids in town, it’s Christmas in November. They wait, impatiently, for the right moment. Finally, it arrives: the full moon. They huff and puff through logging trails, farms, back roads and tamarack swamps, the powdery snow soaking pant legs and boots, till they see it- their perfect ice, waiting. And the game is on.”

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!
