Important information for new and existing Reach Out and Read pediatricians.

Reach Out and Read thrives on the passion and service of more than 20,000 primary care providers and staff who make our model a standard part of pediatric care. Collectively, we serve more than 4 million children and their families nationwide.

We are proud that the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) have officially endorsed the Reach Out and Read model of early literacy promotion.
