Donate Books to Reach Out and Read
CHOP’s Reach Out and Read program coordinator purchases the brand-new infant, toddler and preschool books we need at a 60% discount, so we greatly appreciate monetary donations, as they make the greatest impact. Your generosity will allow the primary care pediatricians and nurse practitioners at CHOP’s 27 Reach Out and Read sites to give 80,000 brand-new, age-appropriate books to young children during their primary care well visits and talk with parents about the joys and importance of reading aloud and language development.
We are always in great need of brand-new board books for infants and toddlers (6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24 and 30 months old). CHOP’s Reach Out and Read program coordinator can purchase the books we need at a 60% discount, so we greatly appreciate monetary donations, as they make the greatest impact.
