Story Book Trail Opens in Lincoln Park

Story Book Trail in Lincoln Park Hopes to Inspire Literacy

The Story Book Trail at Lincoln Park opened on November 16, inviting a new and exciting way for Manatee County to improve literacy and reading confidence among students. Story Book Trail is composed of panels along the Lincoln Park walking trail that serve as “pages” of a book, giving children and parents the ability to practice reading while getting exercise and fresh air. The first book featured on the panels is A Walk in The Forest, by Maria Dek, a poetic story that includes counting animals and plants while enjoying the beauty of nature. The installation was a collaborative effort between the School District of Manatee County and Soar in 4, and was sponsored by I am Yes Joyful Projects and Manatee Education Foundation.
