Reach Out & Read
Acorn Pediatrics is proud to be part of the Reach Out and Read Program, a national organization to promote early literacy. To foster a love of books and reading, Acorn Pediatrics gives a new book to each child at well child check-ups, from 6 month to 5 years. Parents will also get advice on the importance of reading out loud to children from a very young age. Providers at Acorn, and other pediatricians across the country who participate in Reach Out and Read, believe that early exposure to books and reading helps promote a child’s development and leads to later school success. Growing up healthy means growing up with books!
