Read while you walk with StoryWalk®
Derby Public Library and Derby Health Collaborative have joined forces to bring a StoryWalk® to the community at High Park.
Next time you take your kids on a walk at High Park, you are likely to come upon a page from a storybook. As you continue your walk, you'll come upon page after page. Eventually, you mighrt have read a whole book! StoryWalk® combines the pleasure of reading great children's books aloud with the joys and benefits of walking together outdoor.
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 families.
Stories are changed regularly to encourage repeat visits and ensuring that the fun continues year-round.
The story currently featured at the StoryWalk is Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, by Eric Litwin with illustrations by James Dean.
