Rx for Summer Reading


Reach Out and Read-Alabama encouraging families
to “Read Together
and Build a Better World”

Reach Out and Read-Alabama pediatric practices and clinics will celebrate 11 years of stories this summer with its eighth annual summer campaign that promotes families reading together.  Since 2006, our pediatric healthcare providers have prescribed over 1.7 million brand-new books to the state’s youngest and most underserved children. This year, copies of the book Sometimes I Feel Sunny by Gillian Shields will be prescribed by pediatric healthcare providers statewide, who will also write a prescription for children to become involved in the summer reading program, “Build a Better World,” at their local library.
