Ever since my daughter was old enough to begin watching children's television, she's loved The Wiggles...and she's definitely not alone. The Wiggles are the world's #1 preschool entertainers and have performed over 350 shows to more than 1.5 million fans since 2005 in the United States alone. They are seen on TV in over 120 countries worldwide.
Beginning July 7, 2012, fans can also watch The Wiggles on NBC’s new Saturday morning preschool block, NBC Kids. The Wiggles have sold more than 23 million DVDs and videos, 7 million CDs and 8 million books in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
A few years ago, we attended our first Wiggly concert together and loved every minute of it. That's why I was psyched to hear that The Wiggles would be stopping through Houston, Texas again for their farewell tour. This is the last opportunity to see all four original Wiggles in concert.

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 2012 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 reading aloud to young children to ensure future success in school and in life.
Reach Out and Read doctors and nurses serve more than 4 million children and their families annually at 4,946 pediatric practices, hospitals, clinics and health centers in all 50 states. In Texas, 270 hospitals and clinics participate in Reach Out and Read, serving 288,704 children annually.
Parents who participate in the evidence-based 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.

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
