Reach Out and Read San Joaquin

Parent and child smiling togetherReach Out and Read® makes literacy promotion a standard part of pediatric primary care, so that children grow up with books and a love of reading.

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 checkups from 6 months to 5 years of age, with a special focus 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 encourage early literacy skills so children enter school prepared for success in reading.

Reach Out and Read® is a national pediatric early literacy program. For more information visit the National Center website at www.reachoutandread.org.
