Daily reading to infants, toddlers and preschoolers is the best way to establish a habit that will benefit them for a lifetime. 1,000 books may sound daunting, but if a parent reads one book a night to a child for three years, they will have read 1,095 books!"
~Abby Brown, IndyPL's Early Literacy Specialist
Substantial research indicates that the more children are read to during their early years, the more prepared they will be to read when entering kindergarten. 1,000 Books By Kindergarten is a program designed to help you reach the goal of reading 1,000 books to your child before the first day of Kindergarten.
How to participate in 1,000 Books by Kindergarten:
To make this even easier, check out a Bunny Book Bag already full of 20 picture books OR a Baby Bunny Book Bag full of 12 board books.
Read them, and then return them fine free! That's worth repeating...No fines! Grab one and go!
