Reach out and Read

Reach out and Read is a national nonprofit organization that aims to put books into the wating rooms of peidatiric offices all over the country. In addition, they train doctors and nurses to discuss the importance of early literacy with parents.

 

Reach Out and Read trains doctors and nurses to advise parents about the importance of reading aloud and to give books to children at pediatric check-ups from six months to five years of age. A special focus is placed on children growing up in poverty. By building on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers, Reach Out and Read helps families and communities cultivate early literacy skills so that children enter school prepared to succeed at reading.

 

You can help this worthwhile organization by making a donation or signing up for a ROR Visa Card, which donates money for each new account. Attend an event and spread the word! – Melissa
