At Legacy, we believe kids should be healthy in body and mind, and our pediatric providers are treating both when our youngest patients come in for well-child visits. In addition to the physical checkup, families leave with an age-appropriate free book and a “prescription to read.” We’re doing this through Legacy’s Little Readers.
Reading and talking with young children from birth builds new connections in the brain, stimulating early language learning and instilling their motivation to learn. Through Little Readers, Legacy has given away more than 177,000 free books to infants and youngsters during their well-child visits.
Legacy’s Little Readers is an entirely donor supported program, which means we rely on your generosity to keep this important initiative alive. Join us and give the gift of reading!
