Reach Out and Read program is a literacy promotion program that provides education and books for parents to read to their children. This is encouraging, satisfying, and has been proven to increase literacy rates by having a love of books. Each child from 6 months to 5 years old is given a new age-appropriate book to take home when they get immunizations at Montezuma County Public Health. Their parents receive tips on reading and developmental milestones and sometimes a role model for reading.
