Storybook Walk



The Storybook Walk at Central Park provides an outdoor education adventure through Central Park. This new addition to Central Park is a great way to engage families in health, literacy and environmental awareness. The walk consists of 18 stations around the Central Park lake, each station consisting of two pages out of a child’s book hand picked by staff from the St. Louis County Library.  The  route starts at the front of the Central Park playground and runs in a loop around the lake. After you complete the walk make sure to stop by the St. Louis County Library to check out other fun and exciting books. Be sure to check back every 2 months when a different child’s book will be on showcase at the StoryBook Walk at Central Park.

I Found A Kitty!
By: Troy Cummings

Lucky dog Arfy has a home. When he discovers a homeless kitten, Arfy hopes Scamper can come live with him, but--achoo!--his person is allergic to cats! So, Arfy writes persuasive letters to prospective owners about what a great pet Scamper would make. But somehow these matches aren't made in heaven. If Scamper can't live with any of them, where will he go? He needs a quiet home where he could make people as happy as they'll make him, full of laps, pats and purrs, and yarn balls....Arfy thinks he knows just the place!

William's Winter Nap

By Linda Ashman 

Just when William is ready to fall asleep in his cozy cabin, there is a tap on his window. A chilly chipmunk asks to stay, and Will scooches over in bed. "There's room for two -- I'm sure we'll fit." The chipmunk is just the first in a parade of mammals, each bigger than the last, until the bed is full. Then a note is slipped beneath the door: "Do you have room for just one more?" William tugs the door to see who's there . . . only to find a great big BEAR! Is there enough space to spare? Will the other animals be willing to share?
