For Kids

Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read LogoAt Pediatric Associates of Hampden County we believe that a love for reading is key to every child’s successful development and so we are proud to participate in the Reach Out and Read Program. Reach Out and Read (ROR) is a national non-profit organization that promotes early literacy by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud in pediatric exam rooms across the nation. Every child in our practice receives a book at each well child visit between the age of 6 months and 5 years. 

Our doctors and staff know that growing up healthy means growing up with books. The delight in the eyes of our young patients when given the gift of a book makes it clear they agree!
