OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) — It’s like stepping into a children’s book seeing the preparations for the upcoming children’s book event at the Honeysuckle Hill Nature Discovery Center.
Reading Brimsby’s Hats written by Andrew Prahin, the story intertwines with the centre’s love for nature.
Honeysuckle Hill Nature Discovery Center Director Terri Johnson said: “The connection to the birds, the connection to nature. We have snow here in West Virginia. So, you know, it’s part of our environment that we sometimes overlook.
In addition to reading, there are other activities for children at the event.
“We’re going to have a tea party with some of the items featured in the book and we’re going to make a craft.”
The center expressed how important it is to have events like this for children to learn and have fun at the same time.
“They appreciate what they learn. We will talk about birds and take care of animals, value nature.
And since the center offers multiple activities throughout the year, they expect this book event to be special in more ways than one.
“For me to come up with an idea and put it all together and have the kids really enjoy the experience…just make them happy, make them more engaged, maybe in reading and learning about nature .”
The event costs five dollars for children ages 6-12 and begins at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 11.
