1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Can you help your child listen to 1000 books before they start kindergarten? It’s not as difficult as you think! Reading just one book a day gets you to 365 in a year, which means you’ll be to 1000 in a bit over 3 years. Read several books a day and it might not even take one year!
Yes, reading your child the same book over and over counts–it’s a great way to build reading skills. And if other caregivers are reading aloud to your child, those books count too.

Track your progress on our paper logs or online. Get a sticker for every 100 books you read. When you reach 1000, your little one will be added to our Wall of Fame and get a free t-shirt.
You can download and print our logs to track books you are reading. Or call 734-482-4110 x1340 to reserve a kit you can pick up at any YDL location that includes all 10 logs, a stamp, and stickers.
