July StoryWalk at the French Art Colony

Stop by and visit the grounds/garden of the French Art Colony (530 1st Avenue) to view our July Storywalk title: Bats at the Ballgame by Brian Lies.

"Hurry up! Come one -- come all!

We're off to watch the bats play ball!"

You'll never forget your first game: the green so green, the presence of heroes past, and togetherness with family and friends, rooting for the home team.

But you think humans are the only ones who enjoy America's national pastime? Grab your bat -- the other kind -- and your mitt, and join these captivating bats as they flutter off to watch their all-stars compete. How about a mothdog? Or some Cricket Jack?

In sweeping compositions that transport fans to the right-side-up and upside-down world of bats at play, Brian Lies treats us to a whole new ballgame. (blurb courtesy of author's website)

As a special treat, author Brian Lies has penned a message for our StoryWalk patrons. Look for his message at the beginning of the StoryWalk trail.

If you would like more information about Brian Lies and his books, please visit his website.

Our next StoryWalk title will be available the beginning of September.

StoryWalk is a way for children and adults to enjoy both the great outdoors and great children's books. Follow the pages of the story as you walk from frame to frame along the path. StoryWalk promotes literacy, physical activity, and parent/caregiver involvement.

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
