Story Walk

Story Walk is taking the pages of a children’s storybook and displaying them along the walking trails of Deer Lick and Hunter Park for families and students to enjoy, while also encouraging early literacy and physical activity. Research shows that children who are engaged in reading at an early age are more likely to succeed in higher education and have better outcomes in life. Economic factors also play a role in literacy learning, and in areas where there are low-income families, studies show that reading has already become an issue for children entering grade school.
