We are excited to announce that the first Hanna StoryWalk® is now on display!

Presenting Jump, Frog, Jump by Robert Kalan:

StoryWalks® combines literacy, exercise, nature, and family bonding. The StoryWalk® concept was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and was developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library.

Come out to the Hanna Branch Library and check out this fun story. As you walk along the path, read the story, and enjoy the activities. 

Activities include:

  • Imaginative play that deals with reading, writing, singing, playing, and talking such as, acting out what the animals are doing in the story.
  • Figuring out the difference between a frog and a toad.
  • Questions about the book.
  • Finding two different toad houses on the grounds.
  • Directions for making your own toad house.

Take pictures while enjoying the story and share them with us using the hashtag: #mylplibrary.

Each month through October we will be putting out new stories and activities. There will be two stories in the months of August and September. Check back often to see a new story. We look forward to seeing you there!
