StoryWalks From Curious City

DOWNLOAD information about the Curious City StoryWalk Model. StoryWalk is a literacy and physical activity tool that engages community members in reading children’s books in unique environments. StoryWalk is a series of signs featuring sequential spreads from a children’s picture book. Those signs or pages are spread through indoor or outdoor spaces in all seasons allowing a reader to follow along with a story by walking. The StoryWalk™ concept was created by Anne Ferguson and developed in cooperation with the Kellogg Hubbard Library and the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition.

The concept has been developed into more interactive literacy tools by Curious City. Curious City assists communities across the country to select stories, secure publisher permission, create activity prompts, engage the illustrator to depict the prompts, design the signage, and to help communities choose a means of displaying the StoryWalks.

To fill a two-page space when using the title page, you can use an acknowledgement page from the book, or an illustrated page that isn't a part of the story. Another option is to take a blank page from the front or back (usually a solid color in picture books), cut it lengthwise and use the two pieces to frame the title page on each side. Now, take your ruler and measure a page from your book.
