Feel Good Friday: StoryWalk, Arts Without Barriers, and a Costume Exhibit

PopUp Storywalk

If you want your kids to get fresh air, exercise, and read more, you can nail all three goals at the same time this weekend. Check out PopUp StoryWalk, a local program that deconstructs storybooks and installs posters of pages along trails so families can read a book while they walk. When the trail ends, so does the story. The current installation is Yellow Kayak by Nina Laden. Read it through May 21 at Sammamish Commons Park, 831 228th Ave. S.E. The story begins by the YMCA and continues to the lower park along a paved trail. Check out the website for upcoming books, locations, and more.
