“A park is a truly magical place containing treasures of a very special kind.
As you walk along paths, beneath the trees, look around to see what you find.”
A beautifully illustrated poem story to inspire appreciation for and engagement with the wonder of Mother Nature, both in parks and everywhere around us.
Based on the Nature Story Trail in Beaumont Park, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire (UK), the book includes educational activities and learning resources which focus on wildlife and the ways we can all help our natural environment.
‘A Walk in The Park’ is designed to be enjoyed by readers of all ages. A portion of the sale of each book goes to Friends of Beaumont Park to help keep ensure our local park remains a safe, vibrant, nature-filled sanctuary for the local community and visitors from further afield.
