Reach Out and Read at Bellevue Hospital makes books and parent counseling a routine part of pediatric care, starting at a baby’s six month check-up! Reach Out and Read encourages reading aloud as a regular, joyful home activity that can improve language development, parent child interactions and school success. One of the greatest gifts we can give a child is a love of reading, and it is never too early to begin.
