Discover the wonders of nature on our enchanting Self-Guided Storybook Trail, an experience that invites you to embark on a leisurely stroll through the captivating woodland scenery while you follow along with a book whose pages are posted along the way! Read/walk at your own pace, immersing yourself in the tranquil sights and soothing sounds of the natural world…and when you get to the end of the story/trail, take advantage of Wood Lake’s special nature play area.
Today’s book is Lucy’s Light by Jo Rooks. Lucy is a lightning bug and the most talented flyer in the squad. There’s just one problem: she doesn’t light up! When it’s time to learn night flying, Lucy is anxious. She tries everything to get her light to shine but nothing works. Lucy is about to give up when her friends are captured by a nasty toad and his gang, who hatched a plan to brighten up their bog. Does Lucy have what it takes to save her friends? Or is she just an “ordinary” bug after all? A sweet story which shines a light on inner confidence, self-acceptance, and courage. Lucy learns that doing a good deed will always make you shine bright!
The book is posted along the trail from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This event will be repeated on October 28 and November 18, with a different book each time. Today’s book will also be posted in Spanish.
