About

If you love books and reading to children you'll have a great time as a waiting room reader in one of 20 pediatric and family clinics in the greater KC area (see our website for locations). Read aloud from favorites like 'Goodnight Moon', 'Green Eggs & Ham', and 'Where the Wild Things Are' with children waiting to see their pediatrician.

Reach Out and Read is a medically-based early childhood literacy program that provides free books and literacy information to under served families. Volunteer readers share books with kids, talk with parents about early childhood literacy and hand out new and gently used waiting room books to families.

A blast for book lovers!
