Kensington, MD – For its 16th free Noyes StoryWalk®, The Noyes Children’s Library Foundation presents We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
Families can read this classic adventure story on posted signs at Clum-Kennedy Park in Kensington, MD from Saturday, November 19 – Sunday, December 18, 2022. Clum-Kennedy Park is located at 10207-10225 Kensington Pkwy, Kensington, MD.
First published in 1989, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt has invited legions of young readers to splash, squelch, trip and tiptoe on a grand search for a bear. The rhythmic language and comical repetitions enchant children of all ages, while inspiring families to gear up for their own neighborhood “bear hunt.” Crafts and resources related to the book are available online at www.noyeslibraryfoundation.org/events.
Families are encouraged to share a selfie while at the StoryWalk® or a photo of a completed craft on the Noyes Children’s Library Facebook page (facebook.com/MakeMoreNoyes); post to Facebook and tag the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation, or post to Instagram and tag @makemorenoyes.
The Noyes Children’s Library Foundation launched its Noyes StoryWalk® program in January, 2021 as an early literacy initiative when libraries were closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and continues to enable families to enjoy books together in the outdoors. A complete list of the Noyes StoryWalks®, including background information and accompanying crafts, is available at www.noyeslibraryfoundation.org/Events.
