"Besides medical care, those physicians who join the Reach Out and Read effort also prescribe books. They stress the importance of reading and language and coach parents about best practices in reading to children. Exposing toddlers to books at the earliest ages stimulates early brain development, sets the stage for vocabulary building and recognizing the written word, and thus preparing them for kindergarten and success in school."
