What's a StoryWalk® ? A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart) along a popular walking route in your community, in this case Chamberlain Reynolds. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
We hope you enjoy Kate Messner's tale of a cross country ski trip through winter woods and discover the secret world of animals and how they survive the winter. Christopher Silas Neal's beautiful illustrations capture the magical world beneath the snow and draw you into the world of squirrels, snowshoe hares, bears, bullfrogs, and many other animals. As you walk along while reading the story, remember to look for signs of critters over and under the snow!
