From April 17 through May 15, children and their families can walk along the Oak Island Park in Wausau and read the pages of two children’s books during Trail Tales! The books will be available for reading from dawn until dusk each day, rain or shine. Books that will be posted along the trail are “Little White Rabbit” by Kevin Henkes, about a small white rabbit who wonders what it would be like to be green as grass, tall as fir trees, hard as rocks and flutter like butterflies; and “Spring is Here” by Will Hillenbrand, about Mole, who comes up with the perfect plan for waking up Bear from hibernation after a long winter. Offered by the Marathon County Public Library and the Marathon County Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department. For more info, call 715-261-7220.
