Heartfelt gift: Jammies benefit early literacy program

Nothing goes better with bedtime than soft, organic cotton jammies and a bedtime story. So Swedish children’s apparel maker Hanna Andersson has created two Valentine’s Day-themed prints on its long johns, Funky Hearts and Cross My Heart, with 15 percent of the profits to be donated to the non-profit, Reach Out and Read, which promotes early literacy and school-readiness in Brooklyn, Staten Island, and across the nation. Hanna is well-known for its comfortable, flat-lock seams and quality, and now it’s also getting attention for sharing the love of reading through Reach Out and Read, which distributes books to kids through pediatrician’s offices. Available in sizes 18-24 months to 14. For more information, visit www.reachoutandread.org.
