StoryWalk® at Old Fort Field
Dennis Public Library recently collaborated with the Dennis Conservation Land Trust to present Full of Fall, a StoryWalk®.
With gorgeous photo illustrations, award-winning author April Pulley Sayre explores the transformation trees undergo in fall. The book takes readers through the leaves’ initial change from green to red, yellow, and orange, the shedding of the leaves, and the leaves crumbling as winter approaches. Extensive back matter explains the science behind this process to the youngest of budding scientists.
