Imagine you are taking a walk through a park and you come upon a page from a children’s picture book, laminated and mounted on a stake in the ground. As you walk along the path, you discover another page, and then another, and you realize you’re reading a story!
StoryWalk combines the pleasures of reading wonderful children’s books aloud with all the joys and benefits of walking together outdoors.
StoryWalk is a fun, educational activity that places the pages from a children’s story along a popular walking route in your community. You may have seen one placed on posts around a library or along a path in a park, on storefronts down Main Street, or on the walls of a long hallway. Conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and other adults to take young children outdoors to enjoy reading stories together, StoryWalk helps build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy outdoor activity for both children and their grown-ups.1”
The StoryWalk in Plymouth will be showcased by many of our downtown businesses. The StoryWalk will begin at Treat’s on the north east side of downtown and will wrap down the street and then back up on the west side of the street, ending at the Brass Rail.
This fun event will run until Sunday, December 31st.
