Storywalks were created as a way to combine literacy, physical activity, and fresh air. Visit Webster Park to follow our current story, The Iciest, Diciest, Scariest Sled Ride Ever! by Rebecca Rule and illustrated by Jennifer Thermes. At each stop you'll find a page from the story and activity to do. We plan to rotate new stories in once every season. Read about our story walk in the BDN here!
