StoryWalk® is an innovative and fun program where parents/caregivers of young children are encouraged to come take a walk through a park, along a path, or trail reading one page of a book at a time.


StoryWalk® is an exciting educational activity that helps build a child’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy outdoor activity for children –and adults! StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson in Montpelier, VT. StoryWalks have been installed in all 50 states and in 11 different countries.

The Daily Nonpareil has featured the StoryWalk events in several stories. Click the links below to learn more.
