Reach Out and Read
Early Childhood Education students lent a hand to a program that gives young children and families access to books and the joys of reading.
Students in Mrs. Yobb’s class pasted stickers into donated children’s books to identify them as part of the Reach Out and Read program, which gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.
The books will be used by South East Lancaster Health Services, where Kathleen Brumbach works as a physician assistant. Mrs. Brumbach is the wife of RMCTC bricklaying instructor Lee Brumbach. Families at the clinic receive information and advice about the value of reading, as well as a home library of books to enjoy together.
Research shows that children who are read to by their parents develop improved language skills and a greater love of reading.
