1000 Books Before Kindergarten
We are super excited to participate in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten (also known as 1KBK) program.
The concept is simple, and the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten.
Does it sound hard?
Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).
The key is perseverance. Make it exciting. When your children reach a milestone, give him/her a small reward (stickers, backpacks, books), and we'll help with the rewards at every 100-book milestone.
