Storywalk-"Winter's Coming" by: Jan Thornhill

StoryWalk® is simply a book and a walking path combined.  In 2007, Anne Fergusson with the Vermont Department of Health had the idea to combine literacy and exercise. Teaming up with the Kellog Hubbard Library in Montpelier they attached laminated pages from a children’s book onto wooden posts.  In the ten years since, StoryWalks have gone up in all 50 states and at least 11 countries. The pages are affixed to metal sign stakes and a trail instantly becomes even more fun for children and book-lovers of all ages. StoryWalks® will usually remain up for one-to-two weeks along easy trails about one mile or less. The story featured this time is called "Winter's Coming" by Jan Thornhill.
