1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Help your child prepare for kindergarten

Octopus reading a book

The goal is to read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books!) before your little one starts kindergarten. Sign up, get a book bag and record sheet to begin, then earn rewards as you hit each milestone. For children ages birth to 5 years old, not in kindergarten.

Why should you participate?

  • Develop your child’s love of reading at a young age
  • Bond with your child as you read together
  • Get your child ready to read
  • Teach your child all about the library and the joy of books
