Pictured are Shannon and Brett with new born baby Asher Robert, born on February 8, 2012 and Family BirthPlace nurse, Marla Wagner. Shannon, Brett and Asher received one of 25 gift bags from the Prairie Reading Council.
Prairie Reading Council is an organization that promotes reading for all ages. They chose Jamestown Regional Medical Center for their Community Outreach Program for 2012.
February is designated as Reading Month in North Dakota. “We would like to present newborns at JRMC with a gift bag,” Prairie Reading Council.
The gift bags contain a book by Rosemary Welles, Read to Your Bunny, a bib embroidered with READ and a handout that encourages babies to become lifetime readers.
The bags with orange or yellow ribbons have a bib color that is appropriate for either a boy or a girl, the bags with blue ribbons are for boys and pink ribbons are for the girls.
One bag was supplied with an extra bib in the box in case of twins.
Congratulations Shannon and Brett!!
