1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Statistics show that children who have "read" 1,000 books before starting Kindergarten have a better vocabulary, are more attentive and start reading on their own earlier. For every 100 books read, the child gets their own book to add to their home library. You can stop by to pick up a tracking sheet, request that we mail one to you, or download the app for Apple or Android devices at: https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org/resources.
