Book Babies Home Visitor


Founded in 2011, Book Harvest ( is a North Carolina nonprofit organization based in Durham that provides an abundance of books and ongoing literacy support to families and their children from birth. Our innovative programs serve as a model for communities committed to ensuring that all children are lifelong readers and learners. Our vision is of a world in which reading, learning, and access to information are considered rights, not privileges, so that all children thrive.

Book Babies is a program of Book Harvest that provides books and literacy-rich home visits to Medicaid-eligible children and their families from birth. A family enrolls in the program for five years, from the time their child is born. Every year, trained home visitors provide 20 new and diverse, age-appropriate books to enrolled families. Home visitors engage in literacy coaching during their visits. By the time a family graduates from Book Babies, they will own 100+ diverse, age-appropriate books and will, we believe, enter school more ready to learn.
