Village Pediatrics participates in the Reach Out and Read Program
Studies show that more than one-third of American children enter kindergarten without
the fundamental language skills that they need to learn how to read. Reach Out and Read is a non-profit organization
that has partnered with doctors nationwide to promote early literacy by providing children with new books during their regular
pediatric check-ups and giving advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud. For more information, click
