Mission Statement

Reach Out and Read Kansas City makes literacy promotion a standard part of pediatric care so that children grow up with books and enter school ready to read.


Description

Reach Out and Read Kansas City is a pediatric early literacy program serving Kansas City's most vulnerable children. Our program partners with pediatric doctors to make free books available for children in lower-income communities at every well-child visit from birth to five years of age. Reach Out & Read clinic doctors and nurses are trained to advise parents about the importance of reading aloud. By building on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers, Reach Out and Read helps families and communities encourage early literacy skills so children enter school prepared for success.
