Discover the wonder of a trip to the park in this origami picture book from Christine Manno and paper artist Linda Stephen
Picture book hardback ISBN—978-1-647030-03-2
The Day We Went to the Park takes the reader on a walk around a community park – exploring all there is to see, do and hear. Through rhyming verses and detailed origami paper sculptures, the picture book invites readers to observe, imagine and interact with some of the nature at the park including squirrels, ladybugs, pine trees, prairie flowers and a painted turtle. The origami illustrations featured in The Day We Went to the Park reflect the richly diverse communities in which we all live and include people of different ages, ethnicity, ability and gender.
Author directions and video for making an origami caterpillar. Coming soon.
We're delighted to present our first picture book. Thank you to readers and art enthusiasts of all ages. Thank you to all of the teachers and librarians and mentors around the world who have helped us to keep exploring inside and out.
May you always find beauty in the world.
Linda and Christine
