Read a story together as you enjoy a walk through your town or local park!
A StoryWalk® is a fun, family-friendly, outdoor activity, where pages of a book are placed along a walking route. Each stop along the way displays one page of the book.
Agua, Agüita / Water, Little Water by Jorge Argueta tells the story of the water cycle from the perspective of one little droplet. The story is written in three languages: English, Spanish, and Nahuat.
Pick up a route guide from your local library or see a list of all routes.
Here are some fun learning activities you can do together along the walk or after the walk.
Here are some booklists with suggested reading to learn more about the water cycle and nature.
The StoryWalk project is generously supported by the Friends of the Marin County Library.
Thank you to all our community partners and participating members of our civic and business communities!

This interactive program is designed to foster a sense of community and a love of story. It encourages community members to get to know their local businesses and parks, while promoting play, literacy, and exercise through a book-inspired treasure hunt.
