Reach Out and Read Book-Related Policies
Reach Out and Read is,
first and foremost, about promoting shared reading of high-quality
books by caregivers and young children. Some topics, while of
social or personal value, are not appropriate for all populations
and may distract from the central intent of the program.
Accordingly, Reach Out and Read Programs do not distribute
books that have commercial/media tie-ins, contain stereotypes,
or touch on subjects such as death, medical issues, religion,
holidays, and divorce.
Reach Out and Read's National Office does not provide blurbs,
written endorsements or reviews of books.
Book Selection for Reach Out and Read Vendor Catalogues
Books given by medical providers as part of the Reach Out and
Read program are made available through catalogues published for
Reach Out and Read by selected vendors who choose the books for
their catalogues according to the guidelines above, and considering
factors such as price and availability. Authors wishing to submit a
book for consideration should contact those vendors directly.
