Program Overview

The Northwest Reach Out and Read program is a collaboration between the Early Childhood Program of Northwest Missouri State University and MOSAIC Health/St. Francis Hospital in Maryville, Missouri. The program promotes early literacy by providing a developmentally-appropriate book to every child, age birth to 5 years, at well-child checkups at the hospital. Doctors "prescribe" reading to children during the checkups.
