“Second to immunizations, this is the most important thing I do as a pediatrician.
And it’s fun, too!” — Dr. Karen Haslund

Sample only. Actual content subject to change.

The pediatric literacy starter kit contains materials to prescribe families with the task to “read a book together twice a day.” Included in your kit are books and tools for you to encourage reading habits during routine exams. These include high-quality, developmentally appropriate books for ages 0-5, provider guides, shelf labels, forms for program management, and prescription stickers to be signed with the child’s name.

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

See how your patients — and your practice — are doing.

Each kit also includes plenty of reading tips and survey cards to be handed out to parents with their child’s choice of a book. Adult caregivers follow the link to take the survey and get a chance to win an incentive gift. BookSpring gathers confidential, voluntary information regarding family reading practices and satisfaction of care. When you register for our subscription service, we will provide you with online access to aggregated results so that you can check the impact of your efforts anytime.
