PopUp StoryWalk is going through some changes!
We are three women and moms who have run the program since the beginning in 2018...our kids are getting older and with increasing activities and commitments our priorities are evolving alongside our children. It is for this reason that this organization is moving to a partnership model.
We have already partnered with Brightwater Center's Education Department where you can experience an ongoing PopUp StoryWalk installation at their Woodinville location.
We are currently looking for more partnership opportunities in our community. PopUp StoryWalk continues to serve our community with travel kits that can be rented by other groups, organizations and schools for up to one month. These kits will have all of the materials needed to install a successful StoryWalk as well as an explanation of how to install the H metal frames properly into the ground.
PopUp StoryWalk is a local program promoting literacy, health, and art appreciation using deconstructed children’s storybooks installed in outdoor community spaces. Begin a children’s story at the start of a trail, read posted pages along the way, and end the trial as you end the book.
Get Outdoors! Get Reading!
PopUp StoryWalk rotates between book selections, inspiring families to follow our installations and experience a featured book in a new location. You can enjoy a new outdoor adventure with each PopUp Storywalk installation.
We choose books that illustrate the themes of nature, combined with lessons of kindness, empathy and creativity. We are also collaborating and choosing books with local authors and illustrator's.

We did this on Saturday and it was magical! We were alone on the trail, sun shining, fall leaves were quietly falling.
A moment I will cherish in my memories. – Sherry Nadeau
