Can you read 1,000 books together before your child starts kindergarten?

This program helps build a solid reading foundation (a key to school success!). Plus, it’s fun to read together! It’s a great way to bond and relax.

Does 1,000 books feel like a lot? If you read just one book a day, you’ll be done in less than three years (and most kids can listen to more than one book a day!) which leaves lots of time before kindergarten starts.

What kinds of books can you read? Any books you want! You can read a favorite book as many times as you want to – and count each time towards your 1,000 books count. They can be library books, books at home… you can even count the books Miss Laura reads to you during Story Hour!

Keep us updated on your progress and participate in our 1,000 Books wall mural.

This is a self-guided program, so read at your family’s pace and most of all, remember to have fun!
