AN INNOVATIVE IDEA FROM VERMONT--STORY WALK, COMBINES FITNESS, LITERACY AND FUN
Release Date: April 13, 2009
A great idea from Vermont: STORY WALK---combines fitness, literacy and fun. Pages of a childrens book are placed on a stake and the childrens book is spaced equidistantly along the length of a bike path or wooded trail. Each complete story walk consists of no fewer than 30 stakes. The first story walk was installed at Montpeliers Hubbard park in Vermont. This would be a great initiative at town parks, or nature center and could be done in conjunction with the Library. I will be asking town staff to look into this creative idea. The goal: adults bring children to the story walk to get exercise and to have fun reading together. What do you think? Would you be interested in getting involved in a task force to work on this idea?
