The day will begin with a keynote speech by Dr. Robert Needlman, a founder of Reach Out and Read and the coauthor of Dr. Spock’s Baby and Child Care, and will include presentations from the Horn Book and our partners about choosing and using books for young children. Anna Dewdney, author-illustrator of the preschool-popular Llama Llama books, will close the conference with a reading. I hope you can come!
