Our Mission Raising Readers in Wyoming encourages parents to read to
their young children by providing beautiful new books as part of the
well child health care visits.
I have been
distributing these books since the inception of the Raising Readers
program and have seen a significant impact on my patients. They
still want their sucker when they leave, but the older sibs of
'second generation' babies are asking for their books! I am seeing
more and more children looking at the library in our office instead
of sitting in front of the TV or playing with the toys. I can't
take any credit for this, and can only assume it stems from this
outstanding program. And heaven forbid if I've run out of
books...the sad look on their faces. I would encourage everyone to
get on board and help out this program that encourages and
stimulates reading at such an early and critical age in development.
