StoryWalk®

Two families playing in the snow

WHAT IS STORYWALK®

StoryWalk® is a fun and innovative way for people of all ages to exercise their bodies, as well as their minds.  You can take a nice walk and read a story while you get some fresh air!  Located in Findlays beautiful Riverside Park, you walk clockwise starting at the bandshell and the story continues through the park and ends at the Waterfalls Pavilion.  The story changes the first of each month.  StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.  For more information, please call us at 419-422-1712.  A special thank you to the Hancock County Park District and the City of Findlay for installing StoryWalk® at Riverside Park.

Ten Ways to Hear Snow

by Cathy Camper

One winter morning, Lina wakes up to silence. It's the sound of snow -- the kind that looks soft and glows bright in the winter sun. But as she walks to her grandmother's house to help make the family recipe for warak enab, she continues to listen.

As Lina walks past snowmen and across icy sidewalks, she discovers ten ways to pay attention to what might have otherwise gone unnoticed. With stunning illustrations by Kenard Pak and thoughtful representation of a modern Arab American family from Cathy Camper, Ten Ways to Hear Snow is a layered exploration of mindfulness, empathy, and what we realize when the world gets quiet.
