Help us make books and reading part of a healthy childhood for kids in New York's neediest communities.

    Each year, Reach Out and Read pediatricians help prepare more than a quarter of a million children in New York’s neediest communities for school by prescribing free books and helping parents make reading part of their family’s daily routine.


    By 2 years old, children from low-income homes already lag developmentally when compared to children from more affluent families.  This sets up a domino effect. Most children who start kindergarten behind struggle to catch up. And today, in New York City, only 47% of public school students are reading at grade-level!


    That's where we step in. 


    Reach Out and Read of Greater New York reaches children 6-months through 5-years old in New York's neediest communities - including children who are homeless and in foster care. Our pediatricians give children books of their own to keep and counsel parents on reading at home to help prepare their children for school.  This message is reinforced every time a family visits their pediatrician for a checkup.  By reaching children when they're young, we're helping families build a foundation for their success in school and beyond.
