The Community Reading Partnership supports and encourages young families as their children grow. Your gift can make a lifelong impact on their ability to raise readers. Through the generosity of our sponsors, patients at the Canandaigua and Farmington Pediatrics offices receive a new book at their one-year checkup and their caregivers are given literacy tips. A healthy dose of family reading time is the perfect prescription!
We’ve timed this to coincide with the recommended 12-month well-baby visit when pediatricians check for signs of healthy development. This is a good opportunity to discuss screen habits, sleep routines and strategies for building a young child’s vocabulary. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions to help nurture your child’s love for reading.
