Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help to strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary – two important tools for learning to read when they attend Kindergarten. The key is perseverance!
Easy! One book per night for a year is already 365 books. Do that for 3 years and you’ve read 1095 books. Most kids start Kindergarten at age 5, so you’ve got two years of flexibility built-in!
For every 100-book reading log turned in, kids will get a sticker to show their progress.
But that’s not all! For every 200 books your child reads, they’ll earn a special prize, including bags, books, and a special award for reaching 1000 books.
Call the Youth Services department at 270-442-2510 x122.
There are two easy ways to keep track of your progress to 1000 Books: reading log sheets and the 1000 Books app.
