Children love the “NoYes” sign over the door to the Noyes Children’s Library, and now they can head outside to read about the power of “turning ‘No’ into ‘Yes'” in Kamala and Maya’s Big Ideaby Meena Harris!
The third Noyes StoryWalk®, presented by the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation in collaboration with the Town of Kensington, will be available for self-guided exploration from Saturday, March 20, 2021, through Sunday, April 10, 2021, at Clum-Kennedy Park in Kensington (10298 Frederick Ave., Kensington, MD 20895).
Written by Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece, Meena Harris, Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea is based on a true story about Kamala Harris and her older sister, Maya, when they were children. The girls want to create a play area in their apartment building’s courtyard, and they use collective cooperation to achieve their goal. Storywalk® details are HERE!
StoryWalk® is an innovative way for children and families to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Past Noyes StoryWalks® have included: The Mitten, by Jan Brett, displayed on store windows in Kensington; and The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats, displayed at Warner Circle Park in both English and Spanish.
