Ways to Give.
Books, like mirrors, help reflect what we observe and know about the world we live in. It’s powerful to read or listen to a story about someone like you. Books also allow us to view and understand lives that are different from our own, like a window onto other experiences. But to succeed as mirrors and windows, books must tell a wide range of stories—and they must include a diversity of people and worlds. At Reach Out and Read, we’re committed to increasing access to inclusive books for young people of all races and backgrounds.
The Mirrors and Windows Fund supports the purchase and distribution of diverse and children’s books to Reach Out and Read sites. Ready to get started? Download a toolkit here.

At Reach Out and Read, we believe all children should grow up learning a love of reading on the laps of people who love them. That’s why our doctors work with parents every day to demonstrate the value of reading aloud and beginning basic math concepts. They share so many books each year—7 Million—and that’s why we need YOU! When you donate books through Reach Out and Read’s Virtual Book Drive, you provide over 34,000 medical practitioners across the United States with the tools they need to promote reading aloud every day.
