A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart) along a popular walking route in your community, in this case Chamberlain Reynolds. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
We hope you enjoy Aimee M. Bissonette’s story where you will explore the winter woods. Discover how much is happening in a seemingly empty woods once you slow down, listen carefully, and look closely. Erin Hourigan’s beautiful illustrations bring this winter wonderland to life. As you walk along while reading the story, remember to look for animal signs along the trail!
After exploring the story along the trail be sure to visit the Holderness Free Library for a fun craft activity where you can create your own animal track stories!
The StoryWalk will be up from Thursday, December 15th-Tuesday, February 28th.
