1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

According to research findings, the more children ages 1 - 5 hear books read to them, the more prepared they are to learn to read when they reach kindergarten. Through the “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten” program, children exercise six early literacy skills: oral language, phonological awareness, vocabulary, print awareness, background knowledge, and letter knowledge.

Register at the WTPL circulation desk and pick up your first reading log. Track what you read to your child in the reading log. When you reach 100 books, bring your log into the library so your child can get the first reading incentive and the next log. Once you reach 1,000 books, your child will get a certificate and a prize.
