Welcome to our first Story Walk of the summer!
Featured through the end of July, enjoy The Pajamas of My Dreams,
a picture book by librarian Laurie Collins and illustrated by award-winning artist Margie Florini.
Laurie worked in the MA library system for 15 years, and her work with the non-profit
organization Cradles to Crayons gave her inspiration to write this story.
Cradles to Crayons provides local children in need of clothes, books, school supplies, and
shoes. Margie Florini, also from Boston, creates this "soulful story" using a cut-paper collage
technique to show children tucked in their beds wondering "What will I be when I grow up?"
A Story Walk is a great activity encouraging families to explore literacy outdoors.
Presented page by page around our front garden, please visit this story. Have fun!
