StoryWalk at the Park

Enjoy the crisp air and colorful leaves of Fall by visiting our newest StoryWalk® at the North Farms Park, located at 149 Branford Road, North Branford! Our StoryWalk® connects families and young readers with nature, outdoor exploration and reading. Pages from Frederick by Leo Lionni have been transformed into signs and displayed along the family-friendly hiking trail at North Farms Park. Follow the path of pages and read the story of Frederick, the poet-mouse. While all the other mice are gathering food to prepare for winter, Frederick gathers rays from the sun, a rainbow of colors, and marvelous words to warm the hearts and spirits of his fellow field mice.This StoryWalk® is a collaboration between North Branford Parks and Recreation and North Branford Public Libraries. We hope this interactive, family-friendly activity encourages a lifelong love of reading and the great outdoors. 

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.
