1000 Books Before Kindergarten

parent reading to two children on a chair with the text: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten - Read it and Reap!

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 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. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you more time than you think (so get started).

The key is perseverance. Make it exciting. When your child reaches every 100 books read level, bring your forms to the library for a small reward. When your child has read all 1,000 books before Kindergarten, bring your child and forms to the library for a very special reward.
