rgz Newsflash: Reach Out and Read


So excited to learn of Reach Out and Read and then hear my work was chosen for the program. Check it out and visit the drive. Here's to readergirlz' little sister site, readertotz, and community service for them! 

Reach Out and Read prepares America's youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together. In the Greater New York region, we provide new, age-appropriate books and literacy guidance to over a quarter of a million children. 

Bedtime Kiss for Little Fish is one of 11 books included in the online Virtual Book Drivewww.reachoutandreadnyc.org/VirtualBookDrive.htm

This year the celebration is the 14th Anniversary of Reach Out and Read of Greater New York, on May 6, 2013, at The Helen Mills Event Space and Theater in New York City. Susan Kaufman, Editor of Time Inc.’s People StyleWatch Magazine will serve as Auction Chair.
