They had laminated book pages and placed them on nice stakes. I did a cheaper version and essentially did not spend a dime.
|Each page of the book was on a separate stake.|
It took two copies of the same book to create this book walk. I used a small Clifford book I had at home and used a tape runner to adhere the pages to each fan. I numbered them so I would not lose track of the order of the pages.
|The only disadvantage to the fan stakes was we had to squat to read each page|
|This was our third time running around to read the book|
|We had a visitor along the way|
|Now the goats want in on the entertainment. My son was having so much fun he ran from page to page!|
My children and I had an amazing time on our book walk. I love any activity that encourages reading. I am sure there will be more books and book walks to come.
Just a Hint:
This is easiest to do with books that do not have illustrations or text that crosses the pages.
