1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
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.)
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a non-profit organization with the goal of creating the next generation of readers.
