The Wiggles are proud to announce that the U.S. school readiness initiative Reach Out and Read will be the official charity partner of their 2011 American tour.   Reach Out and Read prepares America’s youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to “prescribe” books and encourage families to read together.  Together, Reach Out and Read and The Wiggles will work to raise awareness about the importance of parental involvement and reading aloud to young children.  This year, Reach Out and Read will serve 4 million children and families nationwide through 4,600 hospitals, clinics, and medical practices.  In Washington, 114 hospitals and clinics participate in Reach Out and Read, serving 67,000 children annually.

Parents who participate in the research-proven program read to their children more often, and their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies and a six-month developmental edge. A portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will be used to support Reach Out and Read Programs across the United States.  A portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will be used to support Reach Out and Read Programs in the Seattle area.
