The Story Walk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and was developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, formerly of the Kellog-Hubbard Library.

The idea is to engage children with enjoying reading and outdoors at the same time.

Story walks have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries.
