Montpelier’s Anne Ferguson loves reading and walking. She found a way to combine her two passions into a children’s program to make reading and exercise fun, says The Times Argus. It’s called StoryWalk and is exactly what the name implies. Kids currently can choose from six trails and read pages from six different books as they walk. Anne chooses only those books that have striking illustrations, a good story, and minimal amount of text. The pages are mounted on card stock, laminated to protect them from the weather, and stapled to sticks placed on a path. It’s had an unexpected and unintended impact on adults, as one reader noted, "…I’m sure this was intended for little kids, but this big kid (55 years old) loved the treat." Future plans call for a library of StoryWalks to be made available for use by other communities. Maybe this is the new "rub your head and chew gum at the same time" challenge.
