Mission Statement

Reach Out and Read prepares America's youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together, so that children will grow up with a love of reading and learning.

Description

Reach Out and Read builds on the unique and influential relationship between parents and medical providers to develop critical early parent-child book-sharing routines, beginning in the infant and toddler years. Research shows that Reach Out and Read successfully prompts families to read together more often, such that children served in clinics that participate in the program, develop stronger language expression and comprehension skills.

Reach Out and Read Minnesota is the state branch of this national non-profit, serving over 75,000 Minnesota children through over 135 participating clinics.
