Butler Park StoryWalk

Out in the community? The StoryWalk® is an outdoor educational activity that places the pages from a children’s story along a walking route at a local park. Fun prompts build early literacy skills, combining the pleasure of reading with the benefits of learning and movement.

In rhyming text, Hispanic children count the things, like piñatas and maracas, that can be seen in their neighborhood.



The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. The Monroe County Public Library StoryWalk® is funded by the Friends of the Library Carol R. Nicholas Endowment for Strategic Initiatives.
