Reach Out and Read

Philanthropic donations of all sizes help Children's Hospital of Philadelphia make a difference in the lives of countless children. By donating to our Reach Out and Read program, you will help prepare children to achieve their potential in school and beyond. Reach Out and Read is a nonprofit organization that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. In the exam rooms during well visits, primary care physicians and nurse practitioners incorporate Reach Out and Read’s evidence-based model by advising parents about the importance of reading aloud and language development and giving brand-new, developmentally and culturally appropriate books to children ages 6 months through 5 years.

To learn more about other ways you and/or your organization can provide Reach Out and Read with vital support, please contact Steph Cieslak, Development Officer at 267-425-7023 or
