What is Reach Out and Read?
Reach Out and Read is a national program that partners with healthcare providers to promote early literacy and school readiness in young children. At each well-child visit, your child will receive a developmentally-appropriate book and your healthcare provider will provide guidance on how to read with your child and make reading a fun and interactive experience.
Why is reading with your child important?
Reading with your child from a young age can have a significant impact on their cognitive and social- emotional development. It can also help to build vocabulary, improve communication skills, and foster a love of learning that will benefit your child for years to come.
