The Cheatham County Literacy Council’s third “Book Walk” event is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 7 from 10 a.m.-noon at West Cheatham Elementary.
The featured book will be “Turk and Runt”, a Thanksgiving comedy. No one in his family listens to Runt’s warnings about showing off for visitors to Wishbone Farm, not even after people with roasting pans begin choosing the juiciest turkeys.
Participants will walk along pathway where pages from the book have been posted in sequential order. After reading each page, families move to the next station, pausing periodically to answer questions posed by volunteers and West Cheatham teachers.
Participants will collect story-related artifacts at each questioning station, and use these items to create a Thanksgiving craft at the end of the walk.
Snacks will be provided, and every child will receive a new book of their choice to take home.
This will be the last “Book Walk” of the year, with additional walks planned for next spring.
