Books at Birth

With the assistance of the RSVP volunteers, the C.I.D.S. nurses, and the Arnot Ogden Medical Center, FRPCV provides every newborn with a gift of a new board book and a message to parents that promotes reading in the family.

The Books at Birth program:

* Places books into families' homes, increasing book ownership

* Lets families know that it is never too early to start reading aloud to their babies

* Starts a new community book tradition by celebrating the birth of the baby, one of the most joyous family events, with a book

* Provides our community's families with a common book experience that crosses ethnic and socio-economic lines

* Lets families know the importance and pleasure of reading to babies:

* Reading aloud to babies creates a special bond between parent and child

* Reading aloud to a child now will help the child have success learning to read later on.
