While visiting a public library in Fort Myers, Florida last week I learned of a reading challenge for new parents called “1000 Books Before Kindergarten”.
It’s a great way to encourage reading and create a foundation of knowledge before children begin school. By reading just 3 stories a day you and your child will meet a goal of 1000 books in one year.
If you are interested in this idea, stop by the library and pick up a reading sheet to get started.
