Why support Reach Out and Read?
Pediatrics Northwest is pleased to be an ongoing partner with the national award-winning Reach Out and Read program. Reach Out and Read makes books part of a healthy childhood and a standard part of pediatric care. At every well child exam from the age of 6 months to 5 years, our patients receive a new, developmentally appropriate children’s book to take home and keep. In fact, we raise funds to distribute more than 12,000 books annually to our families. Reading aloud with children encourages healthy brain development, strong bonding, and language and listening skills that set the foundation for a lifetime of success. Together, we are working towards the day when all children enter kindergarten supported by highly engaged parents and prepared to excel.
