GLEN ROCK, N.J.– Take a walk through a storybook at the Thielke Arboretum in Glen Rock.
The summer StoryWalk at the Arboretum is the classic fairy tale, "The Three Little Pigs," which is presented with bright cartoon-like illustrations, interactive dialogue and with changes in font and use of boldface to emphasize the action in the story. Participants can follow the arboretum trail to discover each page of the story.
The creator of the illustrations was Ed Bryan, a native of England, who said he wants "to make things that are beautiful, charming, funny, have high production values, and attention to detail."
This book was personally selected for the children’s enjoyment by members of the Arboretum Planning Team, all educators, from a selection of books culled by Sally Morgan, co-owner of The CuriousReader, a unique and special children’s bookstore, located at 229 Rock Road, in Glen Rock.
This StoryWalk is made possible through the efforts of the Friends of the Thielke Arboretum, Inc. and through collaboration with The Curious Reader, and Mail & More Inc., at 233 Rock Road, a full service mail center providing personalized packing, copying, shipping, and more, under the direction of Paul Duggan.
The Three Little Pigs will be available all summer from dawn to dusk at the arboretum.
The StoryWalk is free, but donations to the arboretum are appreciated.
TheStoryWalk concept was originally created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and is currently used in 48 states and four countries.
