StoryWalk at the French Art Colony

The Library's new StoryWalk title is now on display at the French Art Colony.

Stop by, enjoy the gardens and grounds, and read Can I Be Your Dog? by Troy Cummings.

This is the story of Arfy, a homeless mutt who lives in a box in an alley.

Arfy writes to every person on Butternut Street about what a great pet he'd make.

His letters to prospective owners share that he's house broken! He has his own squeaky bone! He can learn to live with cats!

But, no one wants him. Won't anyone open their heart--and home--to a lonesome dog?

Readers will be happily surprised to learn just who steps up to adopt Arfy.

A heart-tugging dog adoption story told through letters--deeply sincere and almost desperate pleas for a forever home--from the dog, himself!

October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month so be sure to read Arfy's tips on how YOU can help a homeless animal.

Find dogs in need of a good home by visiting the Gallia County Canine Shelter and Friends of Gallia County's Animals.

Listen to Can I Be Your Dog? at Books Alive on YouTube.

Read an interview with Arfy at Podcast Bunny Presents (The Children's Book Podcast).

Our next StoryWalk will be available the beginning of November.

StoryWalk is a way for children and adults to enjoy both the great outdoors and great children's books. Follow the pages of the story as you walk from frame to frame along the path. StoryWalk promotes literacy, physical activity, and parent/caregiver involvement.

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.
