Discover picture book adventures as you walk through Hamilton and Lakeside Park by visiting the latest StoryWalks. StoryWalks encourage families to enjoy reading and the outdoors by posting a children’s book – a page at a time – at intervals along a path.

During the warm season, our StoryWalks get a new story each month. What's happening in June?

At Lakeside Park, start at the Deneveu Shelter to read two different books! In "Whose Track is That" by Stan Tekeila, discover the hidden clues animals leave behind to help you identify them in the wild. Then, in "Dino Pajama Party" by Laurie Wallmark, laugh as dinosaurs from all around gather together to play instruments, dance, and sing before bedtime.

Over at Hamilton Park, in a wordless picture book called "Spot, the Cat" by Henry Cole, a cat named Spot ventures out an open window and through a city on a journey, while his owner tries to find him. Start on Forest Avenue - the story ends by the playground equipment!

Check out our special summer StoryWalk at Gottfried Arboretum! During the Summer Reading Program, start at the East Lot to read "Explorers of the Wild" by Cale Atkinson, the story of a boy and a bear who love to explore - and when they meet in the woods, their lives change forever.
