32 million adults in the US cannot read. We partner with Reach Out and Read
medical clinics to provide an early-literacy intervention.
During checkups at Reach Out and Read clinics, young patients receive a new book
to take home. Healthcare professionals also speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud to
children, starting in infancy.
Reach Out and Read families read together more often, and their children enter
kindergarten with larger vocabularies and stronger language skills.
