StoryWalk® May 2 – May 31, 2015
Screen-Free Week is a nationwide event sponsored by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and celebrated by schools, families and other civic and community groups each year.
For anyone who has been afraid to express themselves – from a child in art class to an adult whose fear has shut down a long-held dream, Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot (Candlewick Press) is there to remind us all to “Make your mark, and see where it takes you.”
Starting on May 2, the pages from this wonderful children’s book will be posted in the windows of the artist’s studios. Just walk along the boardwalk and enjoy. This story is great for people of any ages.
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are displayed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story.
StoryWalks® have been installed in 48 states and four countries, Germany, Cananda, England and Bermuda. They are always received with appreciation.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
