1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Take a pledge to read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten to your baby, toddler or preschooler.
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 that 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.
