1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless.

Start a reading routine with your baby, toddler, or preschooler to help them develop school readiness skills. We'll help you stay on track by setting milestones and incentives on your child's path to reading 1000 books before kindergarten.

Simply color in, check off, or add a star sticker to the reading log each time you read a book with your child. When all the stars have been filled in, return your completed logs to the library and collect fun rewards.
