New StoryWalk Available: Annie’s Woods
Thursday July 1
StoryWalks are a fun and interactive way for readers of all ages to enjoy a story and the outdoors at the same time!
Each StoryWalk will feature a children’s book that we have taken apart and attached to sign boards, then placed along a walking path in a DeKalb Park. StoryWalks are a great way to engage young readers and practice emerging reading skills in an unexpected environment. They help build interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity at the same time.
To participate, families can just take a normal walk in the park, pausing occasionally to read a new page. Time between pages can be perfect for discussing the story or simply enjoying quality time together in our wonderful parks!
This month, the story at Annie’s Woods is Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall.
