What is a StoryWalk®?
StoryWalk® is a fun and innovative way for people of all ages to exercise their bodies, as well as their minds. As you take your walk, you will come to posts which contain 2-page spreads of a picture book. By the time you have come full-circle, you will have read a book in its entirety.
StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and developed with the help of Rachel Senechal of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 11 countries including, Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, and Pakistan. Thanks to the Village of Sherwood and our sponsors, the Sherwood Branch Library has been able to bring StoryWalk® to Sherwood’s Little Reservation Station Park, 405 N. Harrison St.

Leo isn’t reading, or writing, or drawing, or even speaking, and his father is concerned. But Leo’s mother isn’t. She knows her son will do all those things, and more, when he’s ready.
With its message of patience and humor, Leo the Late Bloomer is more timely than ever.
