Reach Out and Read: Partner in Family Literacy Webinar on August 24

2017 August 18

Reach Out and Read Texas gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into well-child doctor visits and encouraging families to read aloud together. The Reach Out and Read model has been studied extensively. The research shows that:

• Parents served by Reach Out and Read are up to four times more likely to read aloud to their children.
• Reach Out and Read reaches the child through effectively teaching the parent to start lifelong learning in the home.
• During the preschool years, children served by Reach Out and Read score three to six months ahead of their non-Reach Out and Read peers on vocabulary tests. These early foundational language skills help start children on a path of success when they enter school.

How does the Reach Out and Read model work? How can my library partner with Reach Out and Read Texas? Attend this (free) webinar next Thursday, August 24 from 2:00 to 3:00pm CDT to learn more and have these questions answered. Presented by Jocelyn McConnell, Reach Out and Read Texas Program Manager.
