1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

All children under the age of five can participate in this program. Read a book to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your precious one stars 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 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.

The key is perseverance. Make it exciting. When your children reach a milestone, give them a small reward.
