1001 Books Before Kindergarten

Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help to strengthen their language skills and building vocabulary. The program is designed to help prepare your child for kindergarten by developing these skills.

It sounds like a lot of books, but if you read only three books a day, you will be done in just about a year!

For a log, come to Toddler Time on Thursdays at 10:30AM, Storytime on Wednesdays at 10:30AM, the Reference Desk, or go to the Kids site on HCPL's website http://kids.hcpl.net/pandt/1001BooksBeforeKindergarten.htm to print off your own. Books read at programming count, too!
 
When you complete a log, bring it to the Children’s Librarian to have it dated and to get a log for the next level.
Continue on with each book log until your child has completed the program!

For questions call 281-484-2036.

Happy reading!
