The next time you visit Glenlake Park be sure to take a walk on the trail on the eastern edge of the park and experience the new StoryWalk. The children’s librarian at the Decatur Library, Lauren Tennyson, worked with Decatur Active Living to place signs along the trail; each sign is a page of a nature themed children’s book so you can read a book as you walk!

There will be three books featured throughout the summer, rotating every two-three weeks. There will also be an activity guide at the end of the StoryWalk with activities to do at home based on themes from the featured book.

The first book to be featured at Glenlake Park is A Big Mooncake for Little Star. In this stunning picture book that shines as bright as the stars in the sky, Newbery Honor author Grace Lin creates a heartwarming original story that explains phases of the moon.
