Budding Readers volunteers attend all birthing classes at F. F. Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua to talk with expectant parents about the importance and joy of reading to their infants as a part of their daily routine.  Each new family is given a “bundle of books” to get them started.

What a wonderful opportunity for Budding Readers to educate and encourage parents to take an active role in their child’s learning right from the start!  We are proud to be included as part of the preparation for having a new child.

Since July 2012 we have gifted over 798 bundles of books to these new families in more than 162 birthing classes!
