1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading Challenge

Sharing just one book a night gives your child the building blocks for lifelong success! 

It doesn't matter if your child is three, or just three months - there's no better time to start than now! 
Reading helps build social and emotional skills, sparks creativity and imagination, promotes bonding, and helps kids do well overall in school. Take that motivation, open one book, and get started. 

And remember, 1000 is just a number. The goal is to work reading aloud into your regular routine, and let the magic of stories do the rest.
