StoryWalks

StoryWalks are fun, educational activities that place pages from children’s storybooks along local trails.

StoryWalk was created as a way for people of all ages to combine physical activity in a local, natural area with a story combining a love of two things: storytelling and walking.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

About the Book

Written and illustrated by Danielle Daniel (© Groundwood Books/House of Anansi Press, 2015)

In this introduction to the Anishinaabe tradition of totem animals, young children explain why they identify with different creatures such as a deer, beaver, or moose. Delightful illustrations show the children wearing masks representing their chosen animal, while the few lines of text on each page work as a series of simple poems throughout the book. In a brief author's note, Danielle Daniel explains the importance of totem animals in Anishinaabe culture and how they can also act as animal guides for young children seeking to understand themselves and others.
