SPL Celebrates Literacy with 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
"The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started)." (from 1000booksbeforekindergarten.org)
It's simple. Keep track of your books and get a prize at every 100 mark. When you finish all 1,000 your name goes on our special 1,000 books wall and you will get a tasty treat!
