Discover a Great Story at the Zoo in November
During the first two Saturdays in November, guests will have a chance to hear great stories while experiencing the Zoo’s animal habitats. During Nashville Zoo’s annual “Celebrate Reading” event, visitors will follow a story map to hear a different children’s book read to them every half-hour at various stops around the Zoo. Celebrate Reading runs November 5 and 12 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. each day.
The Zoo will offer complimentary attraction tickets (limit of four tickets per person) for anyone donating new or “like new” children’s books during the two Celebrate Reading dates. All books will be donated to Book ‘Em, a local non-profit helping economically disadvantaged children discover the joy and value of reading through book ownership.
Zoo staff and docents will read a variety of children’s book along the Zoo’s pathways at half-hour intervals on Nov. 5 and 12. Additionally, the Zoo will offer a chance for guests to meet some animals up-close if weather permits. Celebrate Reading is included with Zoo admission or membership. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets for seating. More information can be found at the Zoo’s website, www.nashvillezoo.org.
