The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Pedestrian and Bicycle Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is the opportunity to share a book with your children as you wander from page to page down a nature trail. Celebrate the joy of reading and the taste of the great outdoors!
Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes and installed along outdoor paths. As you continue your walk, you will find the next page in the story.
No need to pre-register for this walk. Just show up and guide yourself!

The story is about The Rainbow Fish, a fish with shiny, multi-coloured scales. He has blue, green, purple, and pink scales. Interspersed with these colorful scales are shiny, holographic scales which are his favorites. The other fish love the Rainbow Fish’s scales and wish they had shiny and sparkly scales as well. This story is a great book teaching children all about the importance of sharing.
