U.S. Rep. Walter B. Jones (R-N.C.) visited Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune’s Pediatric Clinic to read a few books to a small group of children as part of the Reach Out and Read program, Aug. 4. The Reach Out and Read program is a national, non-profit organization, which began in 1989. The program targets children ages 6 months to 5 years old. The pediatric primary care provider gives a new age and development-appropriate children’s book to the child at their pediatric checkups for them to keep and take home with them. Then the care provider encourages parents to read aloud to their young children at home.
