Story Walk at Lake Wilderness Arboretum

Calendar/Event Details

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.

February StoryWalk®: 

Need to get out of the house? Take a walk at the Arboretum and read this month's StoryWalk® selection, The Wish Tree by Kyo Maclear. During the month of February, we often think about others and those we love. In this gem of a book, we meet Charles, who wants to find a wish tree. While on his search he makes and helps friends who return the kindness later, a great example of how to love others around us.
