building a literacy-rich waiting room

One of the three components of the Reach Out and Read model is maintaing a literacy-rich environment in your practice’s waiting rooms. The above bulletin boards were created by Ronna Jacobson, longtime Reach Out & Read IL Site Coordinator and pioneer of one of Chicagoland’s first Reach Out and Read programs! These bulletins cover topics like reading at bedtime, favorite children’s book titles of the providers at the clinic, literacy development, and more. You are welcome to use these boards as inspiration.
