StoryWalk

StoryWalk®

Books in Parks? What a novel idea! A walk in the park has taken on new meaning.

What is a StoryWalk?

StoryWalk is an innovative and interactive way for readers of all ages to enjoy a story and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s picture book are displayed on special display posts along an outdoor path in a park. As you stroll down the trail, you are directed to the next page in the story. StoryWalks engage young readers and is a great way to practice Active Reading skills with special activities highlighted along the story.
