StoryWalk 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 this story walk 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®: 

The month of February is usually pictured with red hearts and sweet candy. But what if we thought about the love and care we each need and can share with others. This month's StoryWalk® selection, Hugless Douglass by David Melling, introduces you to a lovable brown bear looking for a hug.  His search for a satisfying hug is met with things that don't feel quite right until he finds the right person. Enjoy reading about Hugless Douglass and then find that person with whom you can share a hug.
