Welcome to Storytime Trail
July 16, 2021.
Storytime Trail, introduced in June as a “book-walk” to celebrate Recreation & Parks Month, has grown into a summertime experience for families and Guelph summer campers.
Four books by award-winning Canadian children’s book authors have been selected. The pages of the books are enlarged and mounted on weather-proof signs then installed along an accessibility-friendly path. To view locations and dates for each title, just click on a book cover.
Some signs along the trail have QR codes. Use the camera on your phone to scan the code and reveal a fun, short video. No phone? No problem. The videos can also be found under “More Fun” of each book. And be sure to download specially-created booklets containing all sorts of fun activities to do at home or as you travel along the trail.
On foot, by bike, in a stroller or using a mobility device, this summer Guelph families are following great stories in a whole new way. Be moved by a story today!
About One World Schoolhouse
Storytime Trail was created by One World Schoolhouse Foundation, a Canadian charity focused on local and global literacy. Since 2012, Guelph-based One World Schoolhouse Foundation (OWSH) has created book festivals for elementary school-aged readers in the Caribbean and Ontario. Co-founders, Sonya White and Richard Clewes are committed to bring young readers and storytellers together in ingenious ways. Since March 2020, OWSH shifted its activities to self-directed events to celebrate the important stories that connect us all.
