With 110 program sites at hospitals, clinics and doctor's offices across Georgia, we provide more than 105,761 children and their families in 67 counties with free books and resources that promote early childhood literacy. Read our 2018 Year in Review report. 

Our evidence-based model is backed by a large and growing body of academic research. We utilize the existing medical infrastructure, to encourage supportive, educational conversations with parents on the importance of reading aloud and the impact on children's brain development.
