Now through March 13
Read this family-friendly book while walking through the winter woods along a one-mile trail. Follow the illustrated signs along the trail at Oak Point Farm (60 Samoset Road, Boothbay Harbor) as they tell a tale that connects you to your natural surroundings. The story trail starts from the parking lot kiosk. The current read-aloud book, “Snowflake Bentley,” is by Jacqueline Briggs Martin with illustrations by Mary Azarian. This is the true story of Wilson Bentley from Vermont, mystified by snowflakes since boyhood. Bentley was determined that one day his camera would capture the wonder of the tiny crystal. His enthusiasm for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are alike, and each one is startlingly beautiful.
