May StoryWalk at the French Art Colony

The Library's new StoryWalk title is now on display at the French Art Colony.

Stop by, enjoy the gardens and grounds, and read Rolling Thunder by Kate Messner.

Lines of bikes are miles long,

shining, half a million strong.

Rumbling, grumbling, engines roar.

Peace signs. High fives. Spirits soar.

Every Memorial Day in Washington, DC, more than a million veterans and their supporters gather for the Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom, a demonstration that pays tribute to the men and women of the US armed forces. This lyrical story honors the bravery and sacrifice of those American heroes -- the ones who have returned home, and the ones who haven't.

If you would like more information about Kate Messner and her books, please visit her website.

Our next StoryWalk will be available the beginning of June.

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.
