CountryGate June 18 StoryWalk

Country Gate Park StoryWalk

This StoryWalk is located at Country Gate Park in New Whiteland.

Come read Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall while you take a stroll with your family.

Description: Jabari is definitely ready to jump off the diving board. He's finished his swimming lessons and passed his swim test, and he's a great jumper, so he's not scared at all. "Looks easy," says Jabari, watching the other kids take their turns. But when his dad squeezes his hand, Jabari squeezes back. He needs to figure out what kind of special jump to do anyway, and he should probably do some stretches before climbing up onto the diving board. 

Special thanks to our partners: Town of New Whiteland, 84 Lumber, and Life Scout Sean Donaldson, who constructed the StoryWalk signs and Little Free Library with the help of fellow scouts from Troop 245 Greenwood, as his Eagle Scout Service Project.
