Reach Out and Read is an organization that has been around for ten years giving books and read aloud advice to parents. Doctors give the books and advice to children and parents. Many children have been served and the program is an effective intervention. Children who are read to at home are better prepared to learn to read themselves.Here's an uplifting promotional video for you to watch.

Life is busy with three kids at home this summer and developing my Parent and Child Reading Assistance business, but I'm going to check with the organization and my children's doctor's office to make something happen with this program at their office. I'll keep you updated on my progress.
Anyone else motivated to make something happen in your town?
Anyone else inspired to donate some money?

Some federal funds have been cut from this program recently. They could use a little help.
