2023 NICU Reading Program Process Guide - Request
Note: this process guide is currently in development and this form is to request the guide when we finalize it. See https://www.babieswithbooks.org/readathon for more information on our read-a-thon, a friendly reading competition between NICUs, and visit  https://forms.gle/fQi7KqsZwYkzmdWb7 to register for the fun event with other NICUs!

The Babies With Books team is delighted to share with you our process guide on how to develop a NICU reading program.
We provide resources on how to develop a reading program, perspectives on our experiences, potential community resources, and other ideas for you to consider as you develop your NICU reading program.

The guide:
-Is highly adaptable to each NICU’s individual needs. Describes multiple approaches to program structure and range of program features (ex. admit reading packets, books rounds) and varying budgets
-Details the learnings from 3.5 years of program development at Randall Children’s Hospital’s reading program that is easy and fun for both families and staff
-Provides templated, modifiable, user-friendly informational resources for both families and staff on how and why to read in the NICU
-Includes book lists with titles in 12+ languages, free and downloadable reading materials, and books written by or representing Black, Indigenous, & People of Color (BIPOC)

NICU reading programs are easy and fun for both families and staff and will support infants and families during and after their NICU hospitalization!
The Babies With Books team is eager to support your work and answer questions along the way! Contact us at our website, babieswithbooks.org, or email us at babieswithbooks@gmail.com.
