I love walking and looking at trees, so couldn’t be happier that Picture a Tree is the first of four titles to be installed as a Storywalk® by the Hamilton Public Library.
A Storywalk® features a children’s picture book, mounted page by page, throughout a park or along a trail to encourage both reading and physical literacy for kids and families. The concept originated in Vermont and typically pairs the book pages with Public Health “tips” for actions that kids will do as they move from sign to sign. With partners from the City of Hamilton’s Public Health and Parks Departments, funds were accessed through the Healthy Kids Community Challenge to create Storywalk® signs for four Canadian picture books.
You can walk Picture a Tree at Mountain Drive Park, in Hamilton Ontario – winter, spring, summer and fall. What is your favourite tree season?
