1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

For all those pre-readers out there and their caregivers—get reading this summer! The program is simple and online. Just read a book aloud to your child and log it online here. You will need to create an account, but this is a fun way to keep track of all the wonderful books you share with your child. When you meet a milestone, head to the library to pick up your prize!

The objectives of this program are to promote reading to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers and encourage parent/child bonding through reading. The benefit is more exposure to more words which will help your child be ready for kindergarten.
