1,000 Books before Kindergarten

Help your child get ready to read with our 1,000 Books before Kindergarten program. Sharing books with your child is the best way to get them ready to read! Read a book to your child and color in a leaf on the reading log. For every 100 books read, your child will receive a prize, but the real reward is time spent with loving adults reading good books! You can download an informational flyer and reading log here to get started.
