The North Canton Public Library invites families to visit its StoryWalk® at Dogwood Park (345 7th Street NE in North Canton). A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s storybook along a popular walking route in the community. The North Canton Public Library’s StoryWalk® will highlight books at easily viewable heights for young children and those participants who use wheelchairs or strollers to travel along the trail.
The featured book for January is Best in Snow, written by April Pulley Sayre.
With gorgeous photo illustrations, award-winning author April Pulley Sayre sheds sparkly new light on the wonders of snow. From the beauty of snow blanketing the forest and falling on animals’ fur and feathers to the fascinating winter water cycle, this nonfiction picture book celebrates snowfall and the amazing science behind it.
The North Canton Public Library’s StoryWalk® at Dogwood Park was made possible in part thanks to a generous gift from the estate of former North Canton resident Janet Daily (1934-2018) who was a kind advocate of books and reading.
The national StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalks® have been installed in all 50 states and several countries including Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Malaysia, and Pakistan.
