What is a StoryWalk? The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT. The purpose of a StoryWalk is to combine physical activity with literacy. It’s a great way to encourage early literacy while promoting outdoors activities for both children and adults. Pages of a book are posted along a path that all can follow. Drop on by the library lawn for a walk through the story Book! Book! Book! by Deborah Bruss.
