StoryWalks

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. Watch this report from FOX 47 News.
