The Foundation’s fourth StoryWalk®, featuring Rainbow Weaver / Tejedor Del Arcoiris, by Linda Elovitz Marshall, will run from Saturday, April 17 through Sunday, May 15th at Capitol View-Homewood Park, 2929 Edgewood Road in Kensington, MD.
This StoryWalk® is presented with the cooperation of Montgomery Parks and the Oakland Terrace Elementary School PTA. Oakland Terrace, an MCPS Spanish-English immersion school and a Maryland Green School, is located next to the park.
Rainbow Weaver, which is told in both Spanish and English on each spread in the book, focuses on a young Mayan girl who wants to weave like her mother and the women of her Guatemalan village, but doesn’t have any weaving material. She discovers that she can weave with strips cut from the plastic bags littering the village, and leads the villagers in cleaning up the roadsides.
Families should also check out the back of each panel, where they’ll find QR codes that link to crafts related to Rainbow Weaver; suggestions for similar books; and information about Earth Day and local events.
