1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Reading a thousand books to your child sounds daunting but it doesn’t have to be!  If you read just three books a day, in just one year you’ll have read 1,095 books.  Plus, you’ll help your child develop important pre-reading skill and set them up for later success in school!
