Robert Louis Stevenson
"Treasure Island". "Kidnapped". "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". These amazing classics were all written by the incomparable Robert Louis Stevenson. Born on November 13, 1850 in Edinburgh, UK, Robert Louis Stevenson also wrote the beautiful and often gifted "A Child's Garden of Verses". His popularity has only increased since his death in 1894, and he is now the 26th most translated author in the world. This November, consider gifting one of his adventures to the reader in your life. Or make a gift to Reach Out and Read to help the adventures continue for children all over the greater Philadelphia area.Learn More
