The importance of daily reading with kids


The Reach Out and Read intervention is unique for its unparalleled access to children through the medical home, supporting families through the trusted voice of the medical provider.

At Reach Out and Read, they believe all families should have the tools and information they need to make reading aloud together a daily routine.

They know shared reading can help develop strong parent-child bonds that last a lifetime, buffering toxic stress and building resiliency.  Literacy is a critical skill and early childhood is the critical time for equipping children for a lifetime of success.
