Our Park Naturalists come to your local library each month to share a story about a native animal and a related craft or activity with preschool through upper elementary age children.
One stormy day a strong wind rages through the forest, causing an old oak tree to bend and sway. Lightning strikes; the tree crashes to the ground. Now it’s a giant log. In this fascinating book, author Wendy Pfeffer and illustrator Robin Brickman introduce readers to the life cycle of a tree. The informative, lyrical text is complemented by stunning, three-dimensional paper sculptures that showcase the forest ecosystem, inspiring readers to take a close look at the trees — and logs — in their own backyards.
This program is FREE to attend, appropriate for all ages, and no advance registration is required.
