StoryWalk at Lake Wilderness Arboretum

Calendar/Event Details

Mon, April 24, 2023

The Lake Wilderness Arboretum and Maple Valley Library have partnered together to bring a StoryWalk® to Maple Valley. StoryWalk® is an innovative approach to encouraging people of all ages to get out and walk while enjoying wonderful children’s books. With her wealth of experience, Sharon Chastain, the children’s librarian at the Maple Valley Library, selects the best children’s books for the project. Then the pages are installed in frames along the Arboretum’s Main Looping Trail so as you walk, you can read the book one page at a time, all while enjoying being outside. Our hope is that this feature will provide children a new way to see, learn and experience the amazing world that we live in.

April StoryWalk®: 

In April, we celebrate Earth Day, so it's fitting that this month's StoryWalk® selection is The Earth And I by Frank Asch. This playful, colorful story is about the friendship between one child and the earth. Follow their friendship as you read one page at a time while walking down the wooded trail and think about your friendship with the earth.
