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 ready for 2023! 

Currently on StoryWalk:

as of 7/27/23   
Book Jacket for: Thank you Bear Thank You Bear
by Greg Foley
Bear has found a box, and he's pretty sure it's the greatest thing ever.  But on his way to show a friend, a few passing naysayers discourage him in his find.  Will Bear's box turn out to be rather important, despite what people say?  This sweet picture book reminds us to keep an open mind about things, even if they look like trash.

Hey Kids Comics
by Matt Feazell
Ever drawn your own comic?  The theory behind this art form can be surprisingly simple!  Start with some of the basics as you browse these how-to-do-it short informational comics.

Matt will join us as a guest at our GAME CON on July 15!  Meet him, enjoy a comics workshop, or stop by for other fun and games (free - all ages - drop in).
Book Jacket for: Around the table that grandad built Around the Table that Grandad Built
by Anne Hunter
It takes a whole family - or more - to put together a meal like this!  In a unique take on the cumulative classic "This Is the House That Jack Built," a family gathers with friends and neighbors to share a meal around a table that brims with associations: napkins sewn by Mom, silverware from Dad's grandma, squash from the neighbor's garden. One might think food tastes better when it's shared!
Where's Baby?
by Anne Hunter
Papa Fox is looking for baby!  Can you find baby fox on each page?  This adorable hide-and-seek tale also makes for great interactive questions: is Baby up in a tree? is Baby under the log?
Pond Babies
by Cathryn Falwell
Welcome to spring!  Which young animals are living in the pond as the year warms up?  Who or what might you encounter if you visited a pond?
Book Jacket for: The little old lady who was not afraid of anything The Little Old Lady Who was Not Afraid of Anything
by Linda Williams
A little old lady who is not afraid of anything must deal with a pumpkin head, a tall black hat, and other spooky objects that follow her through the dark woods trying to scare her.
Come downstairs to the Youth Department for a special Scavenger Hunt challenge while you do the Storywalk! 
And join us for festivities on Oct 26
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?
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.

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.
