StoryWalk
Welcome to StoryWalk, a self-guided reading adventure outside the Highland Library. Enjoy a story in the great outdoors by following a grassy path through the field and down to the lake as you read the story page by page.

Storywalk is done for the 2022 season! 
See you in the Spring!

Book Jacket for: From head to toe From Head to Toe
by Eric Carle
Giraffes can bend their necks, monkeys can wave their hands, and donkeys can kick their legs. And so can you!

Throughout this interactive book, the animals of From Head to Toe invite young readers to copy their antics as they play.
   
   
Book Jacket for: Dinosaur kisses Dinosaur Kisses
by David Ezra Stein
For newly hatched dinosaur Dinah, the world is an exciting place. There is so much to see and do. She tries this -- STOMP! And she tries that -- CHOMP! Then she sees a kiss and knows just what she wants to try next. Who can she kiss? And after a few disastrous attempts, can she figure out how to give someone a kiss without whomping, chomping, or stomping them first?
   
   
Janine
by Maryann Cocca-Leffler

Meet Janine. She is one of a kind. She talks to her imaginary friends, reads the dictionary for fun, knows lots of big words, and remembers things--LOTS of things. She even has her own style of cheering! Some kids think she's strange and want her to change. They don't want her to come to their COOL party. What will Janine do?
   
   
Max the Brave
by Ed Vere
Max is a fearless kitten. Max is a brave kitten. Max is a kitten who chases mice. There's only one problem: Max doesn't know what a mouse looks like! With a little bit of bad advice, Max finds himself facing a much bigger challenge. Maybe Max doesn't have to be Max the Brave all the time...
   
   
  Carrot & Pea: An Unlikely Friendship
by Morag Hood
Lee the Pea has a lot of friends - but there's no one like Colin!  Colin's different in size, color, and shape, and he can't roll like a pea or bounce like a pea.  Does Colin really fit in?  This book about diversity and friendship is perfect for springtime.
   
previously (4/1/22):  
Swim, Duck, Swim!
by Susan Lurie
Photographs by Murray Head
It's time for Duckling to jump in the water and do what ducks do--swim But he doesn't want to get wet. He'd rather take a nap. And he's really, really mad that everyone keeps telling him what to do
Luckily, Mama and Papa Duck are very, very patient, and soon, Duckling will join his siblings in the pond.
   
   
Open 24/7, the StoryWalk is available each spring, summer and fall, whether the library is open or closed.  To get started, face the main entrance and look to your left.
