Will you grow with us?

Reach Out & Read Illinois incorporates children’s books into doctor visits.

From the time a baby is born until they turn five years old, a child's brain grows more than any other time in life! Research is clear that reading aloud to children is key to early development, which is why Reach Out & Read Illinois works to ensure children’s books are built into every part of a well-child visit. This past year we served more than 150,000 children statewide and we grew our program to more than 140 locations, including mobile clinics, sickle cell clinics, and other specialty programs.

We’re proud to have reached so many children in 2023, but we have more growing to do and we need your help to do it!
