Reach Out and Read
surpasses milestone

ROaRlogoEncouraging youngsters to read at the earliest age is proven to help them become not only better readers later in life, but better at many things - writing, comprehension, critical thinking and social interaction. So that is why the Foundation puts much of its effort into Reach Out & Read, a program that gives every child from birth to age 6 a book each time that child visits the family doctor or local clinic. Earlier this year, the 200,000th book was given away in Solano County. About 20,000 per year get into the hands of children and parents in a special partnership with local healthcare providers.
