Reading to preschoolers is beneficial for their
brain development and academic success. It is correlated with improved
attention spans and better concentration. Early reading also ignites
the child's creativity and imagination, teaches them sight words
and expands vocabulary.
The 1000 Books program is designed be a fun approach to establishing
strong early literacy skills. Parents, you can choose between a
sticker log to simply keep track of the number of books read, a
book list log so you can have a record of what books the kids have
read, or download an app to your mobile device to keep track that
way. You do not need to turn anything in, but the kids will get
to have their photo on our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten bulletin
board when they read 100 books, will receive a sticker for every
100 books, and will receive a book gift to keep when they reach

up book logs in the Children's Room or download the 1000 Books Before
Kindergarten app to keep track digitally.
Ready4K: Text messages to boost your child's learning
Parents of preschoolers, you can now sign up for a new, free texting
service that delivers fun facts and easy tips to your phone. Called
Ready4K, the texting service shows parents how to boost children’s
learning and get them ready for kindergarten. In the last year, the University of Wyoming's Literacy Research Center and Clinic teamed up with Stanford University to develop and research Ready4K to make this service available in Wyoming. Research shows that
receiving these helpful texts can significantly increase children’s
learning. Parents and caregivers with children, ages 3 to 5, are
invited to sign up for the free service, which provides three texts
per week. The service is available in English and Spanish.
