Congratulations to these children and their families. If you read your child one book a day, she/he will reach 1000 books in under three years. Though the goal of this program is to improve literacy skills, but even more, it’s about time spent together reading. Ask how to sign your child up for this fun program. For each 100 books read to your child, they will receive a free book from us.
