StoryWalk - Even the Smallest Will Grow
April 24 - May 31, 2021 ✦ Norwich Square
Beloved author-illustrator Lita Judge reminds readers that even the biggest and bravest were once small...
The Norwich Public Library and the Norwich Bookstore have created a StoryWalk featuring Even the Smallest Will Grow, a comforting and encouraging tale by Lita Judge.
A StoryWalk is a socially-distanced way to celebrate this delightful book! Follow the numbered frames around the Norwich Square - just outside the bookstore - and enjoy the story step-by-step, page-by-page! The StoryWalk will be on display for five weeks beginning on Indie Bookstore Day, April 24th.
Lita Judge is the award-winning author and illustrator of many children's books, including When You Need Wings, Flight School, and Red Sled. She lives with her husband, two cats, and a parrot in New Hampshire.
The Norwich Public Library has created a special activity - think spring and new growth - to go with the book! After visiting the StoryWalk, email email@example.com to arrange for curbside pickup of your activity packet.

AVA Gallery and Art Center’s Spring Afterschool and Camp Schedules
AVA Gallery and Art Center seeks to foster support and appreciation for visual artists
and their work. Our educational programs serve as a solid foundation to nurture
future artists and to cultivate an enthusiastic audience. We have a spring schedule of
after school classes for students ages six to thirteen. We also offer two, week-long
vacation art camps for elementary schools. The first begins on Saturday, April 10th.
This camp offers classes in-person, online, and in a hybrid of the two. For students
whose April vacation begins on the 17th, we are offering four, one-hour online classes
that run throughout the week. Students from those schools can access these classes
from home or their favorite vacation spot via ZOOM.
For more information or to register for classes and camps, go to www.avagallery.org online.

Cedar Circle Farm Summer Camps
Monday–Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM
June 28–September 3, 2021
Info and registration here: https://cedarcirclefarm.org/education/summer-day-camp
Curiosity and wonder are all around us during our week-long summer camps! Our highly qualified educators believe that students are the most engaged and learn best when their inquisitiveness and hands-on experiences are encouraged and empowered. Explorations through the forest, adventures along the riverbank, and games between the strawberry fields will cultivate a true appreciation for our ecosystems here in the Upper Valley, as well as the farm-fresh food and the community connections available within this unique setting.
Experienced staff facilitate campers ages 6-11 through activities and learning opportunities in groups of no more than ten. In addition to daily farm chores, games, and sensory-based explorations, campers have opportunities throughout the week to choose their own activities.
Some of these activities may include:
baking a sweet treat for the whole farm
creating and painting garden signs
harvesting fruits or veggies from our fields for a snack
collecting and identifying insects who live on the farm
learning about the food chain while playing a camp-wide game of tag
working in teams to complete a scavenger hunt
tracking the wildlife that visits the farm
Safety, fun, and community building are at the foundation of our education programs. Our program is designed to instill a strong sense of stewardship and belonging among our campers, the environment, and one another.
