StoryWalk at the French Art Colony

The Library's new StoryWalk title is now on display at the French Art Colony.

Our title for January is Once Upon a Winter Day written and illustrated by Liza Woodruff.

Milo wants a story, but his mom is too busy with her own work to read him one. "Why don't you go outside and play," she suggests.

Stepping out into the yard, Milo notices tiny footprints of a mouse in the snow and embarks upon an adventure. 

Following the footprints, Milo discovers evidence of other creatures that live in the forest. Each time, Milo tries to imagine what each animal was doing in the snow.

When it is finally time to go home, Milo now has a story to tell his mother.

What stories can you find on your winter walk?'

See if you can find the mouse on each page!

Our next StoryWalk will be available the beginning of March.

StoryWalk is a way for children and adults to enjoy both the great outdoors and great children's books. Follow the pages of the story as you walk from frame to frame along the path. StoryWalk promotes literacy, physical activity, and parent/caregiver involvement.

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
