Join us for the fall edition of our outdoor, interactive storytelling experience, featuring 

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

by Mo Willems. 


When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place - a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to tell Pigeon “No!” at every turn of the page of this beloved story.

Start at Middleton Public Library to pick up a map and a free copy of the book (for the first 500 kids).

Follow the marked route to visit 23 stops around Downtown Middleton, each featuring an illustrated poster with a page from the book.

What is a StoryWalk®?

A StoryWalk® allows families to follow a book, page by page, by visiting stops throughout Downtown Middleton. Each numbered stop will have an illustrated poster featuring a page from the book.  This is Middleton’s eleventh StoryWalk®.


Some children will even receive their own copy of the book, while supplies last. “Thanks to the Friends of the Middleton Public Library, we are able to offer a free book to the first 500 kids who stop by the Middleton Public Library and pick up their StoryWalk® map," said Katie Ganser, head of youth services at Middleton Public Library.

Want to support the library’s next StoryWalk®?

If interested in donating toward the next StoryWalk®’s activities and book giveaways, please reach out to the Middleton Public Library at Not all StoryWalks® can afford to provide free books to children and donations to the program help make this possible.

StoryWalk® is presented by Middleton Public Library, Downtown Middleton Business Association and Friends of the Middleton Public Library. 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.
