Snap a selfie with one of the pages, and email it, within a week, to firstname.lastname@example.org – include your address and the names of any children 13 or younger who completed the trail. You’ll be sent a coupon for an ice-cream at SoCo (Great Barrington).
Located close to the center of Great Barrington, the Housatonic Flats reserve, a property of the Berkshire Natural Resources Council | The Landkeepers, is a rich resource for all who enjoy the outdoors. More than half of the trail tracks very close to the river, letting visitors see how the stream is undercutting the opposite bank, changing its channel. It’s an easy walk for families to leisurely enjoy while reading the story. Please practice safe distancing from others while along the trails.
The book shares the story of Sadie’s little brother Ori who will be joining her at sleep-away camp for the first time. He’s very excited, but he wants to bring Nuggles, his favorite “stuffy,” and is worried that his bunkmates will make fun of him. Is he ever in for a surprise!
