The StoryWalks® found in Boone County are a perfect way to spend time outdoors while learning and exercising. Promoting early literacy through fun and interactive activities, a StoryWalk® winds through green space and nature, and contains pages from a children's book posted along a trail. Each sign displays a page from the walk's featured story along with an activity or question such as creating a sound, making a physical movement, identifying something in the picture, etc. It also initiates conversation and improves language and literacy skills as families discuss what is happening in the story. So take the kids outside for some fresh air, fun learning and physical activity. Adults will enjoy it as much as the children they accompany! The StoryWalks® in Boone County are a partnership between Boone County Public Library and Boone County Parks. The newest StoryWalk® is a collaboration between Boone County Public Library and the City of Florence.
