Do you need to get outside more with your kids? Want to get your children ready for school? Come and join us on a StoryWalk!
A StoryWalk is a deconstructed book with laminated pages clipped to posts through a green space. To encourage movement between pages, physical prompts are added like “walk like a duck” or “pretend to paddle a canoe” to the next page. This part is most appreciated by kids as they happily jump, dance, and tip-toe between the pages. Reading to kids requires a “time-in” that kids crave and kids need. Parents need it, too. In a world where a person hasall the entertainment, recipes, emails, calendars, and every social connection they’ve ever madein the palm of their hand, taking a walk through a park and reading to kids is the break from the business we all need. Stretching up as tall as a tree and twirling like a dancer is the movement our bodies need. StoryWalks are available at Parkside Art Gallery in 100 Mile House. Book titles are changed out every Friday.
