Grand Opening April 19, 2018 at 11:00am!

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. On this path, you will:

  • ·        Explore & discover nature
  • ·        Exercise with friends
  • ·        Learn about your community
    • ·        Have lots of family fun!
    • ·        Read a great book
    • ·        Probably crawl like a bear at some point
    • ·        Enjoy a scavenger hunt
    • ·        Learn about friendship
    • ·        Improve reading skills
    • ·        Develop literacy milestones
    • ·        Spark conversation
    • ·        Gain life lessons

At StoryWalk® families and friends will have so much fun and create memories while playing and learning outdoors. Children will meet literacy milestones by building vocabulary and literacy skills, preparing them for school. StoryWalk will also open opportunities for conversation about everyday matters. Everyone will feel connected to their own community…how exciting is that?!

Each book will remain on the StoryWalk path for approximately 3 months. Visit this page frequently for story updates, objectives, and activities.
