1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program is a nationally recognized literacy program that encourages parents to read 1,000 books with their child before they start kindergarten.  It may sound difficult, but if you read at least one book each night to your child, after three years you will have read 1,095 books together.  If you already read to your child, you know you often read more than one book at a time anyway.

Register at the Youth Services Desk and pick up a reading log for the first 100 books. Here is a list of highly recommended books – and another list of recommended titles for children! Get reading!
