There are family events we look forward to each fall, and despite how much our children have grown, the Apple Day celebration at Maine Audubon in Falmouth remains a favorite. CP#1 and #2 delight in making their own cider, listening to live music, and exploring the rolling trails along the marsh.
This year promises to be one of the best celebrations yet, as our Audubon friends have added a special event — the launch of a new board book called, “A Little Brown Bat Story” written by Melissa Kim and illustrated by Jada Fitch. The book, which teaches preschoolers about brown bat behavior and habitat, is the second in the Wildlife on the Move series from Islandport Press and Maine Audubon. What we love most: 10% of the proceeds from the book help fund Maine Audubon’s outreach programs for underserved preschools!
While visiting, little ones can listen to the story, meet the author and illustrator, and have their books signed. How special is that? Afterwards, families are invited to follow a story walk on the trails that highlights the little brown bat’s adventures.
In addition to the signing, there will be comfort food from the Wicked Good Food Truck plus all kinds of activities, including a scavenger hunt, face painting and of course, an apple toss. Hope to see you there!
