Numerous studies estimate that as many as one in five children have difficulties learning to read. Reading has been associated as an early indicator of academic success. Public formal education does not typically start until ages 5-6. Before then, parents and caregivers are the first education providers during the 0-5 early critical years. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is a simple (read a book, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 before kindergarten) and very manageable endeavor.
You can pick up a reading log for every 100 books you read at your library or download one from www.oilregionlibraries.org/youth/1000-books-before-kindergarten
. When you finish a log, bring it with you to the library so we can reward you for your milestone! We can't wait to see your progress!
