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 prize to celebrate their progress, including bags, books, and a special award for reaching 1000 books. Every child who participates will be recognized with a personalized bear on Brary Bear’s Wall of Reading Friends. You can watch as your child’s little bear moves along the wall in the Library.
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 or through Beanstack online or with the app.
