1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Reading to babies, toddlers, and 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 Before Kindergarten program is designed be a fun approach to establishing strong early literacy skills. Parents, you can choose between a sticker log, a book list log, or download an app to keep track of the number of books read. When kids reach 100 books, their photo goes up on our bulletin board. They get a sticker for every 100 books read, and when they reach 1000 books, they get to choose a book prize and the 1000 Book sticker goes on their photo.

Get started fostering a lifelong love of reading today; pick up book logs in the Children's Room at the Pinedale Library.
