Next Page Books is partnering with Reach Out and Read Iowa this holiday season to collect new and gently used books for children ages six-months to five years with an emphasis on those growing up in low-income communities. Reach Out and Read Iowa is part of a nationwide program that prepares America’s children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together. Doctors, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals incorporate Reach Out and Read’s evidence-based model into regular pediatric checkups, by advising parents about the importance of reading aloud and giving developmentally-appropriate books to children. If interested, you may drop off a book donation at Next Page Books through the end of the year. Thank you for your consideration.
