Do you think you can read 1000 books with your child before they reach Kindergarten? It might be easier than you think! Any book you read counts, whether it's an audio book in the car, books read at a storytime, board books, ebooks, or a book you read to them. You can even count every single time you read that one old favorite over and over.

Reading aloud to and with young children encourages them to become readers themselves as they grow. Children gain new vocabulary and learn about the world around them through reading even before they can read on their own. Reading just one book (or more!) a day with your baby, toddler, or preschooler gives them a wealth of early literacy skills that will help them become lifelong readers. 

Ready to try and reach 1000 books? You can sign up at any Thomas Crane Public Library location or sign up online. Use the online book tracker to see your progress and become a Super Star Reader!
