The Grand Rapids Library has created a partnership in turning reading into an interactive, community event called Read.Walk.Talk.
Read.Walk.Talk is a free outdoor activity designed for families as an interactive way to get kids reading.
Participants can pick up a map at any GRPL location or online to guide their journey.
Along the path, participants will stop at local businesses to read a page of the book, Señorita Mariposa by Ben Gundersheimer. At each location, participants can read the book pages aloud! Each page will also include a prompt to sing, dance, or get silly!
The experience begins and ends at the Van Belkum Branch Library. You can stop into the library to pick up a free butterfly craft kit if you participate during open hours.
