Visit Our Award-Winning StoryWalks!

StoryWalk is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s storybook along a popular walking route in the community. Different books are displayed throughout the year to keep the StoryWalk experience fresh and promote future learning. 

In 2021, the City of Boca Raton's Public Library was selected as the winner of the City Spirit Award in the Florida Municipal Achievement Awards from the Florida League of Cities for the StoryWalk program. The City Spirit Award recognizes a single, specific citywide effort to successfully address a local need. For more information about the award, read the Florida League of Cities press release.

The national StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.

Pondhawk Natural Area

Daniel Finds a Poem Book Cover

Bring your family over to the Pondhawk Natural Area StoryWalk adjacent to the Spanish River Library to read Daniel Finds a Poem, by Micha Archer. What is poetry? Is it glistening morning dew? Spider thinks so. Is it crisp leaves crunching? That’s what Squirrel says. Could it be a cool pond, sun-warmed sand, or moonlight on the grass? Maybe poetry is all of these things, as it is something special for everyone. You just have to take the time to really look and listen. Enjoy this bright, bold and bonkers book while you walk the beautiful nature trail!
