StoryWalk at the French Art Colony

June 2024 StoryWalk large

The Library's new StoryWalk title is now on display at the French Art Colony.

Our title for June is Ear Worm written by Jo Knowles and illustrated by Galia Bernstein.

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head that you just cannot get out?

Little Worm has the same problem. A song is stuck in his head and he has no idea where it came from -- he has an ear worm!

"Shimmy, shimmy, no-sashay", he sings as he wriggles and bops along.

As he meets Owl, Chipmunk, Bunny, and Fox, he asks each one if they put the song in his head.

"It wasn't me", each one says as they demonstrate the song that they have in their head.

They all decide to join Little Worm on his quest to find where his ear worm came from -- dancing and singing as they go along.

Will Little Worm find who put the song in his head?

StoryWalk is a way for children and adults to enjoy both the great outdoors and great children's books. Follow the pages of the story as you walk from frame to frame along the path. StoryWalk promotes literacy, physical activity, and parent/caregiver involvement.

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
