The 1000 Books Foundation aims to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers and encourage parent and child bonding through reading. Numerous studies estimate that as many as one in five children have difficulties learning to read. The Foundations goal is to provide a simple, innovative and fun approach to establishing strong early literacy skills and help children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.
The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is simple - read a book, any book, to your child with the goal of reaching 1000 before kindergarten.
The library is here to help you reach your goal with easy ways to record and keep track of the books read, fun markers and rewards for reaching milestones, and excellent resources to help encourage literacy and develop reading skills. Stop by the library and talk to the children’s librarians for more details.
