Take a StoryWalk®

Now you and your little ones can enjoy the great outdoors any time during free, self-guided reading hikes! 

In partnership with Hamilton East Public Library, each month we’ll feature a nature-based picture book on the trail for you to enjoy during a quarter-mile hike in the woods.

Books are ideal for ages 6 and under and are available all month long (rain or shine!). Don’t forget to track your participation and earn reading badges on the Beanstack app.

MAY: Billericay Park

"Take Me Out to the Yakyu"


This self-guided walk along the nature trail at Billericay Park features "Take Me Out to the Yakyu" by Aaron Meshon through the month of May. Join one little boy and his family for two ballgames—on opposite sides of the world! You may know that baseball is a Great American Pastime, but did you know that it is also a beloved sport in Japan? Come along with one little boy and his grandfathers, one in America and one in Japan, as he learns about baseball and its rich, varying cultural traditions. This debut picture book from Aaron Meshon is a home run.

On display May 6 through the end of the month.
