Organizer

MASSACHUSETTS REACH OUT AND READ, WHEELOCK COLLEGE, AND THE MASSACHUSETTS DEPARTMENT OF EARLY EDUCATION AND CARE

Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.

The Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care knows that children's earliest experiences are especially important because building the human brain begins even before birth; a strong foundation in early years greatly increases the chance of positive outcomes.  

   Wheelock College is a private college with a public mission. Since 1888, Wheelock College has been providing a transformational education to students passionate about making the world a better place—especially for children and families.
