Reach Out and Read Rhode Island
Reach Out and Read Rhode Island is a research-supported intervention that provides children with books during pediatric checkups so that families can read to their children at home.
We make reading aloud part of pediatric care so that families make reading a bedtime routine at home.
We partner with health care providers to put books in the hands of children, from birth through age five, and literacy resources in the hands of caregivers.
We serve 40,000 children and provide 80,000 books each year with support from the Rhode Island community.
