Community partnerships are essential in helping to provide resources to prepare every child for success in their educational pathway and life.

Books at home, parents reading aloud, and early language skills have long been demonstrated to be vital precursors to later success in learning to read. If we start with babies, engaging parents to effectively support language development at home, we can change the trajectory of children’s lives.

By partnering with communities, doctors, and families, we can help all children in Alabama arrive ready for kindergarten.

Reach Out and Read is grateful to our network of private and public supporters, whose generosity and commitment to our mission enhance our promotion of early literacy and school readiness. These partnerships enable Reach Out and Read to serve millions of children and their families nationwide.

Investment in early childhood development for disadvantaged children provides (up to) a 10 percent annual rate of return through education, health, and social outcomes.
