Mission Statement

Reach Out and Read at Mount Sinai Medical Center is part of the Reach Out and Read national pediatric early literacy program. Pediatricians encourage parents to read aloud to their young children, and give patients books to take home at all pediatric check-ups from six months to six years of age. Through Reach Out and Read, every child starts school with a home library of at least ten new, developmentally appropriate books. Reach Out and Read volunteers read aloud to children in the pediatric wating area. They are a vital part of the program, because they model apporpriate reading aloud techniques to parents. The volunteers also provide a warm, caring atmosphere for children while they wait for the doctor.

Description
