Reach Out & Read Illinois is a local nonprofit that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. Doctors that partner with Reach Out & Read put books in the hands of children at the earliest age and use these books as a tool for modeling good reading habits, promoting family bonding and encouraging early learning.
