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.

September StoryWalk®: 

September is usually sunny but the temperature is not so hot - making it the perfect time to get outside, take a walk and read a book along the StoryWalk® Trail. This month's StoryWalk® selection is I Want That Nut! by Madeline Valentine. This nutty story follows Mouse and Chipmunk as they learn about sharing and friendship and is an entertaining way to celebrate the idea of cooperation.
