Snowmen at Night is on display at the Bryant-Mamaroneck Park StoryWalk

Snowman at night

We are excited to announce the posting of a new book along the Bryant-Mamaroneck Storywalk Trail for the Winter. “SNOWMEN AT NIGHT” written by Caralyn Buehner is a story about the life of a snowman that will capture readers with its stunning illustrations and mystery paintings hidden within the wintertime scenes. Can you spot a cat, a rabbit, a Santa face, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex…? One wintry morning, the Buehners opened their front door to find the snowman they had created the night before had traveled several yards, and was now facing the front door. It made them start to think, have you ever wondered about the secret life of a snowman? The snowman built the day before now looks droopy and disheveled. The family imagines what happened to the snow creation during the night. Soon all the neighborhood snowmen gathered in the park for "ice-cold cocoa," a snowball fight, a round of making snow angels and more. This delightful wintertime tale reveals all! The author’s witty, imaginative verse offers many amusing details about the secret life of snowmen and where they go at night.

 

The City of White Plains Recreation and Parks Department, in partnership with the White Plains Public Library, has been pleased to present StoryWalk at Bryant-Mamaroneck Park. The StoryWalk combines a children's story with a popular walking route.  Children's books are selected, the pages separated, laminated, and placed along a walking path at regular intervals so readers can follow the story as they walk the route. The StoryWalk is a great opportunity for parents, teachers, and caregivers to provide a fun and healthy activity for young children. 

 

The Bryant-Mamaroneck Park is located on the corner of Bryant and Mamaroneck Avenues. 

The park entrance is on the Mamaroneck Avenue side. Parking is available in the City of White Plains Mamaroneck Avenue parking lot (lower level). The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
