New Spring Story Is Up at the Bryant-Mamaroneck Park StoryWalk

StoryWalk Digging  Dirt

 StoryWalk, a partnership between the City of White Plains Recreation and Parks Department and the White Plains Public Library, combines a children's story with a popular walking route.  StoryWalk is a great way to inspire parents, teachers, and care givers to take young children on a short stroll and introduce them to a new book at the same time.

On display now is the story of  Nell and her dog Rusty.  In the spring when trees unfreeze and grass grows green and pansies say, “Please plant me!” Nell and her dog, Rusty, can’t wait to dig in dirt just right for digging. But Norman, their neighbor, says “Ewww!” to digging and dirt.  Until Nell and Rusty begin to dig up unexpected treasures: a pretty striped marble, the mini stegosaurus that Nell lost last summer, and most intriguing of all—part of a tiny china doll. Who played with it? Is there more? Norman wonders.  

Now, even Norman can’t resist. He rolls up his sleeves, picks up the extra trowel, and starts to dig in his own careful way—in the process discovering all the simple joys of digging, dirt, and the fun of trying something new. Words and pictures brimming with humor and exuberance capture one of the true rites of spring: Hooray for dirty digging!

This month’s StoryWalk will run through Friday May 31st, 2019. Look for updates on the changing stories on the Recreation and Parks Department website.
