1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Reading to children as young as a newborn is a great way to begin developing your child's early literacy skills as well as a love for reading. Stop in the library and sign your child up for this simple to do program. Pick up a reading record and read the first 100 books to your child. When you complete that sheet bring it back to the library and pick up your next sheet. Does it sound hard? If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read 365 books a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. You know it's never 1 book a night... If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think.
