Located near the Peacock Playhouse, this literacy adventure can be enjoyed by all ages! Take a stroll through a woodland path while discovering "Winter Sleep: A Hibernation Story", by Sean Taylor and Alex Morss - illustrated by Cinyee Chiu.
In this cozy bedtime story, follow a child and his grandma through a winter landscape to explore how the Earth goes to sleep for winter. Spot the sleeping animals as the tale unfolds, then learn about their hibernation habits from the information pages at the end.
Co-authors Sean Taylor (picture book author) and Alex Morss (ecologist, journalist, and educator) offer a gentle introduction to the concept of hibernation. In the frosty, quiet forest, the snow blankets the ground and the trees have shed their leaves. Where have all the animals gone? Are they asleep too?
