The Program
The READ TO ME program gets mothers to read books to their babies. Although the main model focuses on teen moms, it is easily adaptable to other populations and settings. READ TO ME is inexpensive, nondidactic, and pleasurable. By reading picture books to their babies, parents potentially avoid conflicts, become aware of their babies' emotional lives and receive some compensation for their own unresolved issues. It's also fun.
Discussions and Consultations
Susan Straub, Director of READ TO ME, is available to further discuss the program. Currently there are a few new READ TO ME Programs in the planning stages. Several trained READTO ME leaders, and additional volunteers, are available to work with new groups.
