Cover of the June StoryWalk book for Oak View

From June 1–30, Oak View's brick walkways will feature the children's book "The Year We Learned to Fly" by author Jacqueline Woodson and illustrator Rafael López.

On a dreary, stuck-inside kind of day, a brother and sister listen to their grandmother’s advice, learning about days long before they were born, when their ancestors showed the world the strength and resilience of their beautiful and brilliant minds. Jacqueline Woodson’s lyrical text and Rafael Lopez’s dazzling art celebrate the extraordinary ability to lift ourselves up and imagine a better world.

StoryWalk® at Oak View is free, requires no advanced registration, and is open during the park's normal hours of operation. Check out our StoryWalk® Social Narrative, to download and print before going to the park.
