Each month, from June to December, South Berkshire Kids and The Mount welcome the community to enjoy a Storywalk — read a picture book and meander a path through the woods. Today they will present Run Wild by David Covell.

In Hey, you Sky’s blue a girl shouts as she runs by the window of a boy bent over his digital device. Intrigued, the boy runs out after her, leaving his shoes (and phone) behind, and into a world of sunshine, dewey grass and warm sand. Filled with the pleasures of being alive in the natural world, Run Wild is an exquisite and kid-friendly reminder of how wonderful life can be beyond doors and screens.

Discover what is Under My Tree in July.
In August, discover 10 Things I Can Do to Help My World
Sing along with Mister G on September 11 and journey with Señorita Mariposa.
We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt in October
In November, enjoy a retelling of a lively Mexican folk tale, Borreguita and the Coyote.
Explore Animals in Winter in December.

All of the Storywalk community days are free, juststop at the admission booth before you head in to the walk. The Mount’s paths have some uneven terrain and are not always suitable for strollers or people with accessibility concerns.

The Mount is a Massachusetts Cultural Council UP designated organization welcoming participants of all disabilities. They invite anyone to cal and talk with them about any accommodations you may need to join fully in this event.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
