1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Enjoy reading 1,000 books together to help your little one prepare for Kindergarten! Children who are read to from birth have a larger vocabulary, higher rates of academic success, and are more likely to become lifelong learners and readers. Reading together provides a great opportunity for bonding and memory-making. Record each book you and your newborn, infant, or toddler read together on a paper log (yes, repeats count!) and come to the library to claim your prizes!
