Florida’s First Lady Introduces A Colorful Keepsake.

Florida First Lady Ann Scott teamed up with the Volunteer USA Foundation in May to unveil the scrapbook-style Love.Read.Learn! Baby Journal to parents and newborns at the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital’s Women’s Pavilion.

About 200,000 of the colorful keepsakes will be provided to Florida hospitals to give to new parents free of charge with the hope of inspiring an early dedication to literacy and health. Filled with sunny artwork from children around Florida, the journal includes space for baby photos, healthy recipes and immunization records.

“I felt being a mom was one of my most important and rewarding jobs, and I wanted this to be a way to give other new families in Florida a positive start in being their child’s first teacher, sharing the joy of reading with them and instilling healthy habits that will serve them well throughout their lives,” Scott said during the unveiling.
