1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Starts January 24th
The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading Challenge encourages families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their little ones, age 0-6, before they start Kindergarten. Why? In order to spend time together while instilling a lifelong love of reading and also building their literacy skills and vocabulary.
How does the program work?
- Participate by using paper reading logs available at the Library’s front desk or by printing them off the Library’s website. You can also participate online using a Beanstack account. Go to www.tomahawk.lib.wi.us.
- Each time you read a book together, record it on your paper reading log or in your Beanstack account. Any book counts, even the same one over and over!
- When a paper reading log is completed, return it and pick up another one.
- Get to 500 books and receive a reward for reaching the half-way milestone. Read 1,000 books and receive a completion reward and certificate. Fun fact – reading three books each day will get you to 1,095 books in only one year!
