Dec. 1 - 31
Get into the holiday spirit! Follow the illustrated signs along the 1-mile trail at Boothbay Region Land Trust’s Oak Point Farm, 60 Samoset Road in Boothbay Harbor. This month’s read aloud book is “Red & Lulu,” written and illustrated by Matt Tavares. Red and Lulu are cardinals that make their nest in a particularly beautiful evergreen tree. It shades them in the hot months and keeps them cozy in the cold months, and once a year the people who live nearby string lights on their tree and sing a special song: O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree. But one day, something unthinkable happens, and Red and Lulu are separated. It will take a miracle for them to find each other again. Luckily, it’s just the season for miracles. . . . From Matt Tavares comes a heart-tugging story combining the cheer of Christmas, the magic of New York City, and the real meaning of the holiday season: how important it is to be surrounded by love. Open during daylight hours only.
