Students at Chestnut Street School in the West Hempstead School District went on a storybook adventure with a StoryWalk® on Nov. 10. Presented and set up by Kerry Nugent of the West Hempstead Public Library, the StoryWalk® broke down the pages of a children’s book in an outdoor space to promote reading and exercise. Students were led by teachers through the field to read and experience “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen.
