Reach Out and Read is a national program that partners with physicians, families, and early childhood educators. The program serves as a distraction to sick or injured children who regularly require critical services at CHaD. Instead of fearing tests and doctor's appointments, young patients look forward to well-child visits as a result of receiving donated books from Reach Out and Read. Since the program was adopted in September 2010 by Dartmouth-Hitchcock, the Manchester Division of Reach Out and Read has given out more than 13,305 children's books to patients of CHaD.
