On My Walk is a young children's book (recommended for ages 2–5) by Kari-Lynn Winters and Christina Leist. It was published in 2009 by Tradewind Books.



Mothers and toddlers take a stroll through Vancouver streets and parks, hearing the sounds of animals around them, and find themselves caught in a summer rainstorm on a Kitsilano beach. The writing style is a unique sing-song rhythm employing children's onomatopoeia.[2][3]

Stage adaptation[edit]

In 2016 the book was adapted for stage, with an original screenplay by Winters and Marcie Nestman. Commissioned by Carousal Theatre for Young People in Vancouver BC, the play opens in June 2016.[4]
