The new StoryWalk is ‘Treasure Beyond Measure’ by Helen Griffiths who lives in New Plymouth.

Helen originally wrote a poem about conservation that she performed at WOMAD NZ in 2018 but it was so much appreciated she was encouraged to turn it into a picture book. ‘Treasure Beyond Measure’ was the result.

If you would like to know more, check out her website about the book

The activities to go with the book are

  • Search for the tiny earth hidden on every page of the book as you walk.
  • Collect an activity page from the start of the StoryWalk® with a collective noun match up activity and a colour in ‘I spy’ picture on the other side
  • If children/parents would like more activities they can purchase a whole 25 page+ pack from the above website.

This story will be up for 7 weeks until the start of December when we will switch to a Christmas story in time for the advent season!

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson. StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries including, Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Korea! They are always received with appreciation.
