THE STORY:

Today, 32 million American adults cannot read and one in four children grow up without learning how to read. Yet many do not realize that illiteracy is more than the inability to read a good book. Illiteracy is linked to almost every major global development challenge there is, from infant mortality and malnutrition to gender inequality and unemployment. (Project Literacy 2016)

Since 1989, Reach Out and Read has been combating illiteracy one book and one family at a time. Our approach is simple; A doctor. A family. A book.

Pediatricians incorporate books during routine well-child visits, encouraging families to read aloud together every day.

We need your help purchasing books. Will you join us by donating today?
