The video is a message from Dr. Brazelton on his 95th birthday that was posted on the Rally4Babies site. Coming from a man who has been an advocate of babies for decades, his enthusiasm about babies is infectious and should prompt all to support the cause of getting all babies and toddlers ready for school and life!
Hopefully the video will inspire many to visit http://www.rally4babies.org to take action by signing the petition in support of telling President Obama and key decision-makers that learning happens right from the start. The event on July 8 from 2:00-2:30 EST is meant to rally Americans around early learning policies that focus specifically on babies and toddlers. Special guests include:
–Soledad O’Brien, Award winning journalist and CEO of Starfish Media Group

–Secretary Arne Duncan, U.S. Department of Education
–Jennifer Garner, Actor and Save the Children Artist Ambassador
