What is a Storywalk®?

A StoryWalk® is just what it sounds like: a story you can enjoy while on a walk. Picture book pages with activity prompts are on mounted frames along the path. The Public Library Association describes “A StoryWalk® is literally taking apart a picture book, placing each laminated page in a weather-protected frame, and placing these frames in an outdoor space so that children and families can enjoy books in an outdoor setting.”

 

They showcase books that are engaging and colorful. The story panels also include activities to complete as well as literacy tips and tools, which focus on the five practices of singing, talking, reading, writing, and playing every day from Every Child Ready to Read (ALSC Liasion).

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
