Be prepared for pediatric literacy with our service!

Sample kit: subject to change.

The BookSpring Pediatric Literacy Kit contains books and materials to prescribe your families with the task to “read a book together twice a day.” Included in your kit are guides, parent tip cards, and tools for you to encourage reading habits during routine exams.

Each month, you will receive high-quality, developmentally appropriate books for ages 0-5, provider guides, prescription stickers to be signed with the child’s name and parent tip cards with a follow up survey to ensure program quality and provide you with feedback about you overall patient satisfaction with care.

We offer technical assistance by e-mail or phone from 9-5 M-F to troubleshoot or answer questions about best practices.

Be a part of a national movement.

Our service is complementary to other pediatric literacy intervention programs and can be integrated in many settings.  Approximately 27,000 of the 58,000 pediatricians in the United States are already offering some kind of ongoing pediatric literacy intervention. You can be one, too.

Books make a difference.

This research-based program is backed by 30 years of published peer-reviewed studies which indicate that pediatric literacy is an essential part of primary care which:

  • Supports literacy at critical points in brain development
  • Encourages return visits to achieve all immunizations
  • Improves parent/patient satisfaction with their care
