1000 Books before Kindergarten

1,000 Books before Kindergarten is as simple as it sounds.

Make a goal to read 1,000 books to your child before Kindergarten. The program is a fun, free way to start your child on the path to a lifelong love of reading as well as help develop language skills and imagination. 1,000 books may seem like a lot, but if you read one book each night, you’ll reach your goal in less than 3 years.
