New Book on display at the Bryant-Mamaroneck Park, StoryWalk

Storywalk Oct 10 through 31 revised poster

The Bryant-Mamaroneck Park is located on the corner of Bryant Avenue and Mamaroneck Avenue. The entrance is on the Mamaroneck Avenue side.    This is an 8.93 acre circular trail way park.  The half mile rugged looped trail is perfect for hiking and exploring nature.  Please note the path in the park is natural and thus could prove to be challenging for some.  Please exercise caution while walking on the path.    Children's seasonal books are on display throughout the warm weather month of  April through October.  Municipal Parking is available at the Mamaroneck Avenue parking structure behind the Dunkin Donuts.  Please observe COVID - 19 rules and practice social distance of at least six feet from others and wear a mask.


StoryWalk is a partnership between the City of White Plains Recreation and Parks Department and the White Plains Public Library.  It is is an exciting initiative  that combines a children's story with a nature walk.  On the StoryWalk, each page of a children's story book is mounted on a display and placed along the path for children and their caretakers to follow.  StoryWalk helps to  build children's interest in reading while encouraging healthy outdoor activity for both adults and children. The StoryWalk is a great way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children on a short stroll and introduce them to a new book a the same time.   A new book is on display every six weeks between April and October.


This month's book selection is Pick a Pumpkin by Patricia Toht, Illustrations by Jarvis.  Pick a pumpkin from the patch; tall and learn or short and fat.  Vivid orange, ghostly white, or speckled green might be just right.  Capture all the excitement and familiar feeling of a favorite holiday tradition.  Readers will be happy to follow along with each step, from picking out the perfect specimen at the pumpkin patch to carting it home, scooping out the insides, carving a scary face, and finally lighting a candle inside savoring the familiar ritual of transforming an ordinary pumpkin into a one-of-a king glowing jack-o'-lantern.

Enjoy!
