Read to Grow Overview
Programs: Books for Babies is a program that builds literacy from birth. Books for Babies reaches 50% of Connecticut newborns --- 21,000 young minds --- and their families annually in partnership with eight hospitals in the Greater New Haven, Hartford, New London and Bridgeport areas. Through Books for Babies, we connect with parents of newborns while on the maternity unit. Trained volunteers visit with parents to talk about early literacy development. Before discharge, each family receives a bag with a new children’s book and a guide that explains the many simple ways to stimulate their child’s language development. Families can receive free new children’s books through the first year of life and information on how to help their child develop early literacy skills.
