Mission Statement

Our mission is to use primary care physicians to give parents the information, support and guidance they need to help children become successful readers.

Description

Books Encourage All to Read(BEAR) encourages reading to children as a way to stimulate brain development of early literacy skills; help parents acquire language; and most important, help children grow up with a love of books. Children living in poverty may lack access to or the money to buy books. BEAR is a program that makes early literacy apart of primary care. Pediatricians encourage parents to read aloud to their children and give their patients books to take home at all pediatric check-ups from 6 months to 6 years.
