Read Right Now! Birds


BirdsToday is a great day to get outside! Take a favorite book and find a park bench, swing or blanket. Or, did you know you can take a walk and read a story as you go, right here in Indianapolis? Visit the StoryWalk in the Ruckle Street Pocket Park. Stroll through the park and read a book displayed in mounted frames. Stories are rotated on a monthly basis. While you are out, point out the birds you see and hear. Can you see a cardinal? What color is it? Can you hear a robin? How many different bird songs can you count?Bird Indy Trunks
