Lupine Fest

StoryWalk in the Pine Bush

A Butterfly Is Patient

Dianna Aston and Sylvia Long, the creators of the award-winning An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy have teamed up again to create this gorgeous and informative introduction to the world of butterflies. From iridescent blue swallowtails and brilliant orange monarchs to the worlds tiniest butterfly (Western Pygmy Blue) and the largest (Queen Alexandra's Birdwing), an incredible variety of butterflies and their lifecycles are celebrated here in all of their beauty and wonder.
Perfect for a StoryWalk® in the Albany Pine Bush during Lupine Fest!

Read a book in a whole new way

The StoryWalk® is currently set up along part of the Karner Barrens blue trail located behind the Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center.  A StoryWalk® is a great way to explore the trails. It is also an exciting and different way to read a book.

A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that showcases the pages of a children's book along a popular walking route.Walk, jump or skip from page to page as you read along the trail.

The StoryWalk® Project was originally created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
