1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.

–Commission on Reading, Department of Education.


Reading to your child is key to reading for your child.  Toddlers learn ten new words a day. Reading together encourages learning, teaches pre-reading skills, and promotes future school success. Taking the time to read with your children on a regular basis sends an important message: Reading is fun and important.

We recommend you read, read, and read some more.  Our libraries help you by making reading fun with the 1000 Books before Kindergarten program.  And now you can use the BeanStack app for that!
