Childhood Literacy


Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read integrates reading into pediatric care to help families build meaningful bonds and promote healthy brain development.  Books are given to children during their Well-Child Visits starting at 6 months old until the age of five. Reading to children can positively impact their language and listening skills while nurturing their curiosity and memory.

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

In partnership with Open Books and The Dolly Parton Imagination Library Program, Esperanza Health Centers will continue to promote literacy among our youngest patients. Every month, children will be gifted one age-appropriate book from birth until the age of five. Reading aloud consistently promotes healthy child development and prepares the child for success in school and beyond.
