1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Children whose parents read and talk to them will know more words by age two than children who have not been read to.  Studies show a child’s vocabulary is directly linked to success once they start school.  Just one book a day adds up fast!  One book a day means 365 books a year.  In less than 3 years, the child will have heard 1000 books.  Two books a day could accomplish the goal in less than 1 1/2 years.

How to Participate

  • Sign up for this free program and receive a free book bag.
  • Read to your infant, toddler, or preschooler as often as you can.
  • Keep track of the titles of the books you read.  You can use a spiral notebook, reading log sheets, or any other method that you want.
  • Your child will receive a free book at the library for each 100 books you read to them.  So bring in your list each time a 100-book milestone is reached.  At the completion of this program, your child will have added 10 books to his or her home library.
