16 Participates in Reach Out and Read Program

The Reach Out and Read Program had some local celebrities reading to kids Sunday, including Newscenter16’s Tricia Sloma.

The reading groups were part of a book fair to benefit St. Joe medical centers’ Reach Out and Read Program, which provides books to children who come in for a check up.

“Studies have shown that the more children are read to at a young age the more likely they are to pick up reading early and it just helps encourage kids to read at an early age,” said Christina McGovern of Reach Out and Read.

Part of Sunday's sales at Barnes and Noble will go to the Reach Out and Read Program.
