1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
This fun and exciting reading program is for children ages 0-5 years, developed to increase awareness of the importance of reading to very young children, as well as encouraging parents to embrace their role as their child’s first teacher. It encourages families to read at least 1,000 books to their preschooler, birth to age 5, before they enter school. Families can sign up today at the Mary L. Cook Public Library. Each time the goal of recording 100 books is reached, children bring their folder to library to receive a free book and pick up more library books. The goal of this project is to help kids enter school ready to learn. Reading is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your child’s success when they begin school.
