Reach Out and Read is launching its fourth-annual campaign with everyone's favorite big red dog, Clifford!
Children can cope more effectively with a disaster when they feel they understand what is happening and what they can do to help protect themselves, family, and friends. In conjunction with Ready Alabama’s campaign called Ready Baby, Clifford and the Big Storm by Norman Bridwell provides a story for families to discuss weather events and how it might affect 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.
Reach Out and Read-Alabama is an early literary program of the Alabama Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, affiliated with the Reach Out and Read National Center.
