Reach Out and Read is a national nonprofit that promotes early literacy and school readiness. A network of pediatric teams provides families at routine check-ups with the knowledge and tools they need to make reading a part of their daily routine. By integrating reading aloud into pediatric care, we reach 4.8 million children across the country—a quarter of whom come from low-income families.

Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to homes in an effort to ensure that every child has books, from birth until they begin school, regardless of their family’s income.

The Institute for Healthcare Advancement has information specific to health literacy.
