Join Esquimalt’s Parks and Recreation staff for story time in the park. These stories are intended for children ages 3-6, but all are welcome. These stories will focus on environmental education and will be followed by a nature walk in Saxe Point Park. Parent or caregiver supervision is required. Help your little ones gain an appreciation for nature, reading, and Esquimalt's beautiful parks.
On August 4th at 10:00 am, we will be reading Sometimes I Feel Like a River by Danielle Daniel and Josee Bisaillon, published by Groundwood Books. In each of twelve short poems, a child tells us how or why they feel like the sun, a river, a mountain, a cloud, the rain, a forest and more. Their deeply felt connections and identification with these wonders point to how much we are all part of the natural world.
We will meet by the flagpole at Saxe Point Park. A nature activity will follow the story
