The Noyes Children’s Library Foundation presents A Tale of Two Beasts by Fiona Roberton, as the ninth free Noyes StoryWalk®. Families are invited to read the book on posted signs as they stroll through Clum-Kennedy Park (10298 Frederick Ave., Kensington, MD 20895). A Tale of Two Beasts Noyes StoryWalk® will run through December 19, 2021.
Described as “totally delightful” in a starred Kirkus review, A Tale of Two Beasts describes an encounter in the “deep dark woods” from two different points of view – that of a little girl who discovers a strange creature and “rescues” him, and also that of the woodland creature who gets “ambushed” and taken away. Humorous illustrations invite children to see differences in the stories, and to appreciate the happy ending.
Families can also find crafts related to A Tale of Two Beasts in a bin at The Noyes Children’s Library (10237 Carroll Pl., Kensington, MD) and by clicking on the images at the bottom of this story.
Families are encouraged to share a selfie while at the StoryWalk® or a photo of a completed craft on the Noyes Children’s Library Facebook page (facebook.com/MakeMoreNoyes); post to Facebook and tag the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation, or post to Instagram and tag @makemorenoyes.
