Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. Our objective is to provide all children with a strong foundation; cognitively, socially, and emotionally, giving them the best possible start to life and leveling the playing field for all children. The Reach Out and Read program begins in infancy and continues through age five, with a special emphasis on children growing up in low-income communities.
