Books Build Better Brains & A Brighter Future for Alabama's Children

Reach Out and Read-Alabama gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care & encouraging families to read aloud together.

Learning begins at birth, and the first five years offer a critical window for brain development. Frequent exposure to words through reading aloud, talking, singing,and rhyming helps young children develop language skills that serve as the foundation for all learning, and fosters a love of books that will last a lifetime. By teaching parents to read aloud to their babies and toddlers, Reach Out and Read's doctors and nurses play a key role in ensuring the healthy development of our state's youngest children.

We know that children are our future and in order for them to have the brightest one possible, they must be prepared to learn.

You are invited to join us in creating that opportunity for all of Alabama's children with your gift of $100 or more.
