We are very excited to share that a new children’s book has been published based on the importance of family and lessons learned after an exploration through the Sculpture Forest! Do you have a young child or grandchild who has visited the Sculpture Forest with you? Would you like for them to have a book that they can really relate to from their personal experience? And have a book with a positive, poignant, uplifting message that also incorporates fun ways for a child to move? Then check out “Frankie’s Wish“.
After a visit to the Sculpture Forest, publisher Terrel Lefferts, author Eva Stone, and artist Emilia Ruminska were inspired to write a book that expanded upon the positive experience with outdoor art that they saw here for children. The trio then crafted a story that incorporates some of the well known sculptures that are particularly popular with .appreciative children. The project was not even known by the Sculpture Forest team until they presented us with the completed book, already published and available everywhere including Amazon, bookstores, and more!
Christmas is coming soon and birthdays are year-round. Need an idea for a gift? “Frankie’s Wish” could be just the thing. You can even make an adventure out of your gift by bringing the book to the Sculpture Forest and your child or grandchild can explore the forested trails with you to discover all of the sculptures woven throughout the story. Or, you can read the story at home together and reminisce about prior adventures.
