Story Time at the Carter Center

My children and I attended story time at the Carter Center this morning. The stories are read in the “Book Nook” area, a corner of the main lobby equipped with bean bags and some chairs for parents. The leader read three books to the group, and then another woman took us on a nature walk around the grounds. The paths were easy to follow for both toddlers and strollers. We saw a couple of ponds, a Japanese garden, and the kids were given bread to feed to the ducks. The children were shown a list of pictures of things found on the ground and received a sticker when they spotted each item. (Items included cattails, ducks, fish, and a few different types of trees.) The nature walk leader fed the fish, which evidently have been getting picked off by overzealous birds. After that, we all headed to another part of the grounds to see the rose garden. Interesting fact that I didn’t know about the Carter Center? It is legal to fish the ponds there!

All in all, it was an enjoyable morning, although I would highly recommend bug spray and sunscreen to attendees. The grounds are open to the public, and there are plenty of spots for picnics, too.
