Natchez Trace Parkway Read with a Ranger Program: “Stellaluna”


TUPELO, MS – The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to come enjoy the Read with a Ranger program at 10:00 am on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at the Parkway Visitor Center. This month’s featured story is “Stellaluna,” a book about a bat that lives with a family of birds. Participants will hear how the animals accept each other’s differences.

Read with a Ranger is a 45-minute program that is most appropriate for ages six and under, but all ages are welcome.  Participants will listen to a story and join in a fun activity to explore each other’s differences and similarities.
