StoryWalk opens at Park-McCullough House
NORTH BENNINGTON — Children — and adults, too — who want to enjoy reading and nature at the same time can head to the Park-McCullough House, where the McCullough Free Library has installed a StoryWalk, a self-guided, page-by-page walk along a path.
The story, "Over in the Forest, Come and Take a Peek" was installed on Saturday by Katrina Hastings, the library's youth librarian, with help from her 10-year-old daughter, Gracie.
"Over in the Forest, Come and Take a Peek" by Marianne Berkes, illustrated by Jill Dublin, invites children learn the ways of forest animals to the rhythm of "Over in the Meadow" as they leap like a squirrel, dunk like a raccoon, and pounce like a fox. They will also count the babies and search for 10 hidden forest animals.
The StoryWalk is sponsored in part by the Vermont Department of Libraries. The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
The walk starts at the rear of the Park-McCullough House, and social distancing guidelines are outlined in the first sign.
