Reach Out and Read - the only literacy program approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics believes that all families should have the tools and information they need to make reading aloud a daily routine. With its network of 33,000 pediatric practices, Reach Out and Read trains pediatricians to help talk with families  about the importance of reading with their children. In addition to giving parents book, Reach Out and Read shows them how to hold books to best engage their children, and how to interact with the text and images to help them follow along. Families gain a deeper understanding of why they should make reading a daily habit, and leave inspired to cuddle up with their young one and a book. Reach Out and Read has near universal scale—we serve 4.5 million children annually.
