Shreve Memorial Library is excited to announce a program to encourage early children’s literacy. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten will let patrons keep track of how many books their children read. The goal of the program is to read to your child every day and reach 1000 books before your child enters kindergarten.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a reading program for infants through preschoolers and their families. Reading is a vital part of everyday life and learning for your child. This program will help you kick start your child’s education and teach them a love of words, reading, and books.
Quality time with your child is also important to their education. By pledging to read regularly with your child, you will have many opportunities to bond as you reach 1000 books before kindergarten!
By participating in the program, you will be helping your child develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a national nonprofit initiative that seeks to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers, as well as encourage parent and child bonding through reading.
We are excited to be a part of 1000 Books Before Kindergarten and hope you are too. Get involved and help share the joy of reading with your child!
