StoryWalk is a great way to combine physical activity and reading, as pages from a children’s book are deconstructed and attached to stakes along an outdoor path. Additionally, through serve and return interactions, adults play a critical role in the brain development of children when they StoryWalk together. United Way of Alamance County has presented four stories through Community Council in partnership with Alamance County Public Libraries.
