Take a StoryWalk in West Glenwood

A new bilingual book entitled “Marco Flamingo / Marco Flamenco” is now out for all to enjoy at the StoryWalk in Gregory Park (West Glenwood Springs). Marco is a flamingo who becomes curious about winter and experiences the wonders of snow for the first time. StoryWalk is a self-directed learning opportunity that places a children’s story (a deconstructed picture book) with fun activities along a trail or in a park. It provides a way to help build children’s interest in reading and encourage healthy activity in families. Visit the self-guided StoryWalk anytime. Fun literacy and physical activities will keep you and your family warm while reading the book together. Visit gcpld.org/storywalk for more information.
