Ever wonder what it would be like to go wherever the wind blows? Lois Ehlert explores just that with her whimsical children’s book “Leaf Man”. Use your imagination and join Leaf Man as he embarks on his unknown adventure.
Find out whether the wind takes Leaf Man east towards the ducks and geese or ventures west to the spotted cows at our Reading in the Redwoods event on Sunday, September 24 from 9:30am-11:00am.
Naturalist Valerie Bain will lead a group hike to the Redwood Forest where families can relax under the trees and enjoy the reading of “Leaf Man”. Afterwards children and their adults will go on a leaf collecting hike, make leaf rubbings, create their own leaf man, and meet a decomposer who recycles dead leaves.
As inspirational writer Lailah Gifty Akita once said, “Do not fear the unknown, dare to be adventurous in life.” Celebrate the changing of the seasons with a family-fun adventure and let “Leaf Man” serve as a lesson and reminder to find the beauty in uncertainty.
Children and adults of all ages are welcome. Parents, remain with children at all times! Tickets for each child are $10 and $5 for children of ENC Members. Adult admission is free. Please pre-pay and RSVP at encenter.org/blog/events.
