About StoryWalk®

The StoryWalk® project was created in 2007 by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and subsequently developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.  Ferguson wanted to create something different, fun and interesting to promote early literacy, physical activity, and family time together in nature. It has since been adopted in all 50 states of America and a further 12 countries around the world. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms.Ferguson.
