Governor Baker has proclaimed November to be Family Literacy Month, marking the 19th consecutive year Massachusetts is celebrating the role families play in supporting children’s developing literacy skills. Communities across the state are encouraged to be part of the celebration by providing organized family literacy activities. One option is to hold a StoryWalk by placing a children’s story — a book taken apart — along a popular walking route. While getting children outdoors for physical activity with their families, a StoryWalk also builds their interest in reading. More information is available online about Family Literacy Month and StoryWalks.
