1000 Books Before Kindergarten

We hope you enjoyed the 2017 Summer Reading Program!

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 before your child starts kindergarten. Sound hard? It’s easier than you think. If you read just one 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. And we have fun incentives to keep you and your child motivated. Want to learn more?
