Reach Out and Read builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers. Reach Out and Read helps develop critical early reading skills in children, beginning at 6 months of age. The families who participate read together more often, and their children enter kindergarten better prepared to succeed, with larger vocabularies, stronger language skills, and a six-month developmental edge over their peers.
