Join Pope Memorial Library in the challenge! The goal? Read 1,000 books to your child/grandchild before they start kindergarten. Reading to your child will help prepare them to read on their own, plus it makes for a wonderful bonding activity with your child.
Is it hard? Not really if you think about it.
That's 1 book every day for 3 years
10 books every week for 2 years
3 books every day for 1 year!
Books can be repeated as many times as you'd like. Simply keep track whenever it's story-time (whether that's with Mom or Dad, Nana, an older sibling, the librarian, preschool teacher, etc.) Record logs are available at the library! And so are lots of good books!
Plus there will be prizes for when your kiddo hits various milestones so you can both be proud of all your reading.
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a non-profit organization with the goal of creating the next generation of readers. Learn more about them here.
