Story book

The Palmyra R-I Parents as Teachers Program in partnership with the Missouri Department of Conservation and Palmyra Park & Recreation Department invite families to discover nature and the joy of reading in Flower City Park.  

A storybook trail brings to life Fran Hodgkins’ book “If You Were My Baby, A Wildlife Lullaby” with illustrations by Laura J. Bryant. 

Families and their children will have an opportunity to read outside and view the beautiful pictures of baby animals in the forests and water, as they grow and play with their moms 

The Storybook trail will be up in Flower City Park by the Tennis Court from Friday, Aug. 30, to Friday, Sept. 13.  

Special activities for preschoolers and their families are planned for Wednesday, Sept. 4 from 9 to 10 a.m. and 1 to 2 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 5 from 9 to 10 a.m.

Children and their parents will have a chance to play, create, and discover the magic of baby animals and other items found in nature.
