Good Morning, Strawbery Banke StoryWalk® Project
Free and open to the public.
Children, adults, and families are invited to read Good Morning, Strawbery Banke, page-by-page, while walking the grounds of the Museum, free of charge, through April 2023.
The StoryWalk® can be read in any order. Orientation signs are located outside of the Lawrence J. Yerdon Visitors Center at 14 Hancock Street and near the entrance located by Pickwick's at the Banke on Atkinson Street.
Launched as part of National Children’s Book Week (Nov 8-14), the StoryWalk® at Strawbery Banke reproduced pages from the children’s book Good Morning, Strawbery Banke, written and illustrated by Wickie Rowland, on weather-resistant signs located around the grounds of Strawbery Banke.
Rowland’s book, Good Morning, Strawbery Banke, follows the story of J.D., a black cat who roams the 10-acre living history museum and walks through different perspectives and ways of life, from historic to modern.
The StoryWalk® at Strawbery Banke is inspired by The StoryWalk® Project created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Mrs. Ferguson. Since its inception, StoryWalk® projects have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries.
