Our Sites


Reach Out and Read began as a collaboration between pediatricians and early childhood educators who recognized the profound significance of infancy and toddlerhood in setting the stage for achievement – 90 percent of brain development occurs between birth and age 5. They correctly hypothesized that pediatricians could empower parents as teachers for their young children by providing early literacy guidance during checkups and making reading aloud a “doctor recommended” activity.

Established in 1999 with five participating sites, Reach Out and Read Rhode Island now works with medical providers at 70 hospitals, clinics, and community health centers reaching more than 35,000 children and families and distributing over 73,000 new books each year.
