1000 Books Before Kindergarten
This free program encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he/she enters school. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop pre-reading skills that provide a good foundation for school and learning success. By reading just three stories a day, you and your child will have read over 1,000 books in one year! It’s very easy to participate. Register at the Library in youth services.
Sign up and receive a parent folder, instructions, reading tips and a reading log for the first 25 books. At 25 books read, participants may select a finger puppet and book bag. The library has incentives for other benchmark numbers along the road to 1,000 books. “Reading aloud to a child is the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading.” -U.S Department of Education, Becoming a Nation of Readers
