Kaiser Permanente's partnership with Reach Out and Read ensures that growing up healthy means growing up with books.
Reach Out and Read is a national organization that promotes literacy by providing a new book to children at their well-child visits beginning at 6 months of age. Kaiser Permanente was the first health care system to adopt the Reach Out and Read model. Research shows that children who grow up with books and who are read to during the first years of life are more likely to love reading and start school ready to learn.
