2014 Dr. Cooke and Sophia, Success Won't WaitThis week, Success Won’t Wait was pleased to partner once again with Nemours duPont Pediatrics in their ongoing a book giveaway program for children who are patients at the pediatrics clinic in Wilmington, Delaware.

This donation – over 150 books – pushed the program total to more than 750 books provided by Success Won’t Wait!

Nemours duPont Pediatrics, Jessup Street, is a primary care pediatrics teaching site for the Thomas Jefferson University College of Medicine where medical students, residents and attending physicians all work together to provide the highest quality primary pediatric care.

The book giveaway program is the latest in a series of efforts to reach out to children across many levels. For example, did you know that many doctors believe that a child who has never had the experience of being read to is not a fully healthy child?  The American Medical Association feels so strongly on the topic that it has suggested that all doctors “prescribe” reading to children!

This week, Dr. L. Cooke, a pediatrician of the clinic and her daughter Sophia (pictured) visited the Success Won’t Wait offices to collect 150+ books to get this program started. This is an ongoing project, so look for more updates soon!

Read now, because success won’t wait! Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit literacy organization based in Wilmington, Delaware.
