A StoryWalk is an innovative way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are installed along an outdoor path. The walk begins by the Little Free Library near our south parking lot off of Woodmont Avenue. As you stroll around Faith’s property, you’re directed to the next page in the story.
This installation grew out of our concern for pandemic-related learning loss and is an effort to share our love of reading with our neighbors and kids at our partner school, Walter P. Carter Elementary/Middle.
Visit Faith to read a new book monthly
(Books are installed around the second Saturday of each month)
September’s StoryWalk Book
The Day You Begin
By Jacqueline Woodson
“There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you. “
There are many reasons to feel different. Maybe it’s how you look or talk, or where you’re from; maybe it’s what you eat, or something just as random. It’s not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet, but somehow you do it.
The Day You Begin reminds us that we all feel like outsiders sometimes—and how brave it is to go forth anyway. And that sometimes, when we reach out and begin to share our stories, others will be happy to meet us halfway
