It may sound like a lot, but when you spread it out, it's only 10 books a week for 2 years or three books a day for 1 year. Log the books you have read to your child (you can even start before they are born) and we will give them stickers as they reach 100 books, 200 books, on up to 1000. When you reach 1000, we will put their picture on our Wall of Fame! We will have periodic celebrations and award ceremonies. You can download an app to keep track of your books at:

1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App
The 1000 Books Foundation is proud to announce the release of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App. My son loves playing with an iPhone and iPad. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App allows him to “scan” books into his permanent library. We then just simply click the books that he has read and the App tracks his progress toward completing 1,000. The App has the ability to track multiple readers if you are reading to more than one child (or if you simply want to track your own reading). Best of all the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App is free.
To get the App now click here: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App
