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.
