1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten encourages all families and caregivers to read one thousand books with their children before they enter kindergarten.

Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help to strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary – two important tools for beginning to learn to read when they enter kindergarten.

Check out the website 1000booksbeforekindergarten.org for information and resources.
