The Fall Story Walk™ is Here!

The Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children's books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail. Discover this fall's double feature at Mount A: When the Wind Stops by Charlotte Zolotow and illustrated by Stefano Vitale and Autumn is Here! by Heidi Pross Gray.

autumn is herewhen the wind stopsFall in New England is a time of transition. When the Wind Stops teaches us about Earth's natural cycles; the wind doesn't really stop, rain goes back into the clouds to create new storms, waves fold back upon the sea to become new waves, and the day moves on to make way for the night. Autumn is Here! celebrates the coming of autumn with a vibrant look at how the world changes along with the season.

To find these stories, start at the base parking lot (where Mountain Road meets Ring Trail) and follow the pages along the western side of the Ring Trail (left at first fork) to Witch Hazel Trail, and finish near the summit. Enjoy!
