A storybook adventure in West Hempstead


Students at Chestnut Street School in West Hempstead went on a storybook adventure with a StoryWalk on Nov. 10. Presented and organized by West Hempstead Library librarian Kerry Nugent, the StoryWalk broke down the pages of a children’s book in an outdoor space to promote reading and exercise.

Students were led by teachers through the field to read and experience “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen. Created by Anne Ferguson, of Montpelier, Vt., StoryWalk is an innovative way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time.
