Why 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten?
It's never too early to start reading with your child! Newborns, toddlers and preschoolers alike benefit from reading with their loved ones. Research demonstrates that young children, especially those from 0-3 years of age, who are read to on a regular basis have an advantage when learning to read for themselves. This routine builds closeness and early literacy skills, both of which are foundations for school success.
Most of all, have fun with your child! This reading goal is never intended to be a burden to your busy day or competition but a fun reminder to spend some precious time together. Happy reading!
