1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

We recently saw a poster at our library about the 1000 books before kindergarten program, Daddy and I were both instantly interested. Once we got home I looked up more information about how it works and it’s so simple. No major list to follow or preferred books to read, just simply read 1000 books to your child before they enter kindergarten. That’s it. So we are now starting this journey and want to share what we read here. Follow along with our list and share your own milestones with us as well.
