Walk Your Way to Reading with StoryWalk®!

StoryWalk® encourages families to enjoy reading and the outdoors by posting a children's book - a page or two at a time - at intervals in a park, hiking trail or other outdoor site. StoryWalk includes activities like talking, reading, writing, singing and playing to help your child develop important early literacy skills.
