As an educator, the importance of reading is near and dear to my heart. But, not everyone has equal access to books to read with their children. Therefore, to begin our shop, we will be giving a portion of our proceeds to the organization, Reach Out and Read.
"Reach out and Read is a non-profit organization that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together." - Reach Out and Read
Through Reach Out and Read, medical providers give books to children at more than 10 well-child visits from infancy until they start school. They also encourage families to read aloud and engage with their infants, toddlers and preschoolers every day. Currently, they are serving 4.7 million children and their families in the U.S. in which half of whom are from low-income families.
