1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think!

After enrolling, pick up your starter pack & bag at the library.

For each 100 books read, your child receives a brag tag.  At 500 books, he/she receives a stuffed reading buddy.  At 1000 books, he/she receives a certificate and a gold medal!
