Story Walk is posted along the Frog Trail at the Nature Institute, located at 2213 South Levis Lane in Godfrey.

StoryWalk is an innovative and delightful way for children and adults to enjoy reading and physical activity simultaneously. Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to storyboards installed along a path. The storyboards direct readers to the next page in the story. The StoryWalk program was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed with the help of Rachel Senechal of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.

This month’s book is Pumpkin Jack by Will Hubbell.

The first pumpkin Tim ever carved was fierce and funny, and he named it Jack. When Halloween was over and the pumpkin was beginning to rot, Tim set it out in the garden and throughout the weeks he watched it change. By spring, a plant began to grow! Will Hubbell’s gentle story and beautifully detailed illustrations give an intimate look at the cycle of life.
