Back-to-School Checkups Get a Healthy Dose of Books
Date:8/5/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

“Mama called the doctor and the doctor said…” Read to your children!

That’s the message Reach Out and Read of Greater New York wants to spread to families across the region with events during their Early Literacy Awareness Week, this August 11th – 17th. Children will enjoy well-loved books like “Five Little Monkeys” (whose mama called the doctor) at readings in hospitals and health centers throughout NYC, Long Island, and the Hudson Valley. The week will conclude with a distribution of over 20,000 children’s books to Reach Out and Read program locations.

“While only about half of preschool-aged children actually attend preschool, 96% visit their pediatrician at least once a year,” points out Reach Out and Read of Greater New York’s Executive Director, Traci Lester. “Pediatricians have access to families. They’re in the best position to deliver the message that reading aloud to your children is one of the most effective ways to prepare them for school.”

All of the Early Literacy Awareness Week readings will take place in hospitals and health centers that offer the Reach Out and Read early literacy program to their patients. Children who visit these clinics receive a free book to keep, and their families receive counseling on how to use books to improve language and early literacy development so that children start school ready to learn. Most of the children served by the program are from low-income families in underserved communities.

Currently scheduled events include:
