1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Welcome to 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten!

Book Bag for 1000 Books before Kindergarten

This FREE program encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he/she enters school-a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves.

  1. Write the titles you and your child read on your Mountain Reading Log. If you read a book more than once you can record it each time. Books read by other people count!
  2. After each 100 books read, return the Log and your child receives the mountain he/she has accomplished book mark. They can place their special personal sticker on our mountain of reading mural and then collect the next reading log.
  3. After finishing 1,000 books your child receives a canvas book bag “I Have Read 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten” and a certificate to fill the bag with books from Judy’s Place.  The most important part is your child gets an AWESOME jumpstart on success in school.

This program has no end date except your child’s going to school.  By reading just 3 books a day your child will have read over 1,000 books in just one year! Visit the library often and don’t forget the Friends Book Store (Judy’s Place) where children’s books are .25 each.
