A Nature Themed StoryWalk®

June 15, 2023 - July 20, 2023

Carver Memorial Library and Friends of Sears Island are collaborating on a nature-themed StoryWalk® for families to enjoy along the Homestead Trail on Sears Island. As families walk along the woods path, they will find posts with laminated pages of the book Wonder Walkers, written and illustrated by Micha Archer. This book is written to appeal to kids ages 3-7, but will be enjoyed by all ages, particularly for its beautiful illustrations and thought-provoking questions like “Is the sun the earth’s light bulb?” While reading this story along the trail, families will have ample opportunity to explore a variety of habitats and the wonders that can be found all around by taking a closer look with a curious mind.

The StoryWalk® will be available from June 15th-July 20th, and directions to the start of the story can be found by the kiosk just beyond the island gate. Carver Memorial Library will have a table at Friends of Sears Island’s Summer Solstice by the Sea celebration on June 21, from 5-8pm, with a reading area set up with plenty of books about the sun and summertime. This would be a great time to check out the Wonder Walkers StoryWalk®!  From start to finish, the story will cover approximately a half mile of the trail.

Sears Island is located off Route 1 on Sears Island Road, just east of downtown Searsport. Check out our Facebook page at facebook.com/friendsofsearsisland.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
