During the Month of April

Come on in to read the book, That's not a daffodil! by Elizabeth Honey.
StoryWalk® is a series of signs featuring sequential spreads from this children's book. The pages are spread throughout a space allowing a reader to follow along with the story by walking.

A series of panels will be displayed in the Cook Room all month. Many thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Meriden for loaning us the book.
