You are setting out on one of life’s greatest journeys...raising a reader
Think about it:
Studies have proven that children get ready to read years before they enter school. They explore print all around them, use language to communicate, are storytellers and recognize letters. These are the skills they need to have to be ready to read and the best way to get those skills is to be read to.
1,000 books may seem like a big number if you haven’t broken it down. Want to spread the reading over 5 years? Then you would need to read a book every other day. Want to finish the program in 2 years? That’s only less than 2 books a day.
How it Works:
Keep track of your reading with a 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten log available at Louisburg Library, using the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten app or any tracking way you choose.
Visit Louisburg Library every 100 BOOKS to grab a goodie from our prize box.
When you and your child have read a total of 1,000 books, visit the library for your final prize!
What we Suggest:
Have Fun! Read a variety of books in a variety of places...read Curious George while outside at a picnic or read Punk Farm during bath time
