LET’S TAKE A STROLL!

 

StoryWalk… A fusion of literacy, family engagement, and physical activity.

Lenoir County StoryWalk is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s storybook along the walking path at Pearson Park in Kinston, NC.  StoryWalk® helps to build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for both adults and children. At StoryWalk, you have an opportunity to join family and friends, have lots of fun, create memories, play and learn outdoors!  Also, preschoolers can better prepare for school and meet literacy milestones by building vocabulary skills through reading and conversation. StoryWalk is truly a great way for families and friends to feel connected to their own community!

So here’s the scoop…  The walking path at Lenoir County StoryWalk is about .25 miles and consists of 21 reading stations.  Each book will remain on the StoryWalk path for approximately 3 months.   Look for a new story in January, April, July, and October.
