StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and has developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library. It is an outdoor reading experience whereby a children’s book is deconstructed,and the pages of the book are laminated and placed on wooden stakes or in permanent kiosks along a walking trail. Get children excited about reading by visiting a Fairfax County Public Library StoryWalk®.
Walk through the library and read "I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean?" by Kevin Sherry. As children walk along the StoryWalk® windows they can use a checklist to answer to questions along the way. Checklists can be picked up at the information desk.

Walk through the woods while following at the pages of a book at the Martha Washington Library StoryWalk® in cooperation with Mount Vernon Rec Center. This season's story is "I Won a What?" by Audrey Vernick.
