Reach Out & Read Program

Reach Out and Read is a national literacy program that makes early literacy a part of pediatric primary care. Through PCC’s Reach Out and Read program, every child age 6 months to 5 years of age receives a new developmentally appropriate book at each well-child check-up. Parents are encouraged by their health care providers to read with their children and to become reading advocates. At times, Reach Out and Read volunteers are availabel to read to children waiting for their appointments. During 2015, 5,893 books were given to children at well-child visits through PCC’s Reach Out and Read program.
