Happy Birthday, Margaret Wise Brown!

On May 23, 1910, the beloved author of such timeless classics as "Goodnight Moon", "The Color Kittens" and "The Runaway Bunny" was born in Brooklyn, New York. Author of over 50 books, her name is synonomous with "bedtime story". Were she alive today, she would no doubt be delighted that "Goodnight Moon" is given to thousands of children each year through Reach Out and Read. To celebrate her birthday, consider giving to Reach Out and Read Greater Philadelphia so that even more children can fall asleep to the beautiful words, "Goodnight stars. Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere."
"I didn't realize how much my son could get out of me reading to him; I thought he was too young to be read to. Now story time is our favorite time!"
