About the Program
Research shows that developing reading habits in your child from birth increases your child’s vocabulary and prepares them for future learning.
We’re here to help you work towards this goal with our new program 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. Built for families with children from birth to pre-K, the aim is to read 1000 books with your child before they start Kindergarten.
Why 1000 Books?
You might be thinking: “You want us to read 1000 books? We already have too many time commitments!” We agree it sounds like a daunting task, but we promise you it is achievable and fun.
If you read one book a day to your child, you will reach 1000 books in less than three years. Read three books a day and you will reach 1000 books in less than a year. Ultimately this program is about sharing the enjoyment of reading with your child and letting them hear lots of different words and stories.
To support you in this reading journey, look out for special bimonthly 1000 Books storytimes and email newsletters, which will include early literacy tips, useful links, book suggestions, and more.
