This Early Literacy Reading Program is for all children 0-5 who are not yet enrolled in school or homeschool. The challenge is to read 1,000 books with your child before Kindergarten. That’s only one book per day if you start early!
Registered parents and their children will receive a binder with suggested reading lists, reading logs and information on early literacy, as well as small incentive prizes earned along the way to your goal. Emphasis is placed on talking, singing, playing, writing and reading with your child to prepare them for Kindergarten.
NEW: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is available online! Using our Beanstack platform you now have access to the entire 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program online. You can check out our curated book lists, log your reading and earn badges and prizes just like with our paper log sheets! Beanstack also makes it easy to sign up multiple children in the same household. As a bonus, you will also receive personalized book suggestions pulled straight from our Eagle Valley Library District collection!
