ABOUT US

Babies With Books is a youth-led program that provides books and information on the importance of reading with babies to families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to support early literacy and family bonding. We have served almost 700 families and provided them with nearly 1800 books. BWB offers books in 7 languages including English, Spanish, and Russian, the most common languages of the RCH NICU families. BWB members are students from 7 high schools across the greater Portland Metro Area. BWB is supported by Randall Children’s Hospital (RCH), the Legacy Foundation, OnPoint Community Credit Union, and Reach Out and Read (a national non-profit organization promoting early literacy). We are working on implementing public reading spaces throughout Randall Children’s Hospital.

Doing What’s Needed

Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.

 

TESTIMONIALS

"My husband and I were fortunate to meet the young man who advocated to begin this program. I just wanted to take the time to give a shout out to all the volunteers involved. What they are doing is amazing. Education (esp. literacy) is a passion tightly woven into our family values and to see someone so young step up and advocate for a program like this just makes me so happy, as an educator and a mother. My husband and I were just so impressed with his initiative, integrity and leadership. We both hope this program continues, long into the future, and we know that young man is headed for amazing things.
Best of luck to all! Keep up the amazing work - it is more appreciated than you’ll ever know!"
