Next Door Pediatrics, one of Reach Out and Read Wisconsin’s medical clinics, was visited by Sen. LaTonya Johnson. During the visit, Sen. Johnson read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and Pete the Cat: Snow Daze to a group of 3-year-old and 4-year-old students from the Next Door Foundation school. After the reading, Sen. Johnson toured the medical clinic and talked with the clinic’s Reach Out and Read medical champion, Dr. Brilliant Nimmer, about the success and impact of Reach Out and Read in the community.

Next Door Pediatrics has given close to 6,000 books to children in the community since becoming an active Reach Out and Read program in 2010. Reach Out and Read Wisconsin is proud to work with more than 205 clinics across the state who provide literacy guidance and advice to more than 94,000 children each year.
