Dr. Yadira’s Reach Out & Read Project

Dr. Yadira and Peak Pediatrics are on track to become a Reach Out and Read site. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recently encouraged pediatricians to encourage reading as an integral part of a child’s development. Through our participation in Reach Out and Read (ROR) every child between the ages of 6 months to 5 years will receive a book at their well child check to encourage incorporating regular reading as part of the lives of our patient’s. We hope to partner with the local libraries in Jefferson and Adams Counties to promote literacy events and use of the library system.

Adams County has an innovative and award winning library system, Anythink Libraries. You can find information on some activities and events for kids to learn in the Thornton area at Anythink Wright Farms, here is a list of August events:
