Read 1,000 books BEFORE Kindergarten

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is a simple - read a book (any book) to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 together before kindergarten. Yes, you can reread books, that counts too!

Reading is an early indicator of academic success, yet public education does not typically start until ages 5-6. 
Before then, parents and caregivers are the first education providers during the 0-5 early critical years. We can help.

Our goal is to provide a simple, but fun way to build strong literacy skills.  Together we can help your child gain the confidence necessary to become a strong reader.
