- Log all of the books you read your child: at bedtime, in the waiting room, in the car, school, church, or daycare. All books count!
- Re-reading books count too! Children love repetition so don't be afraid to repeat their favorite books.
- You only need to read one book per day! If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think!
- Keep visiting your local public library to borrow books, attend storytimes, take advantage of all the resources available to help your child learn to read and thrive.
Even after reaching 1000 books we encourage you to keep reading to your child and to work to build their reading skills and comprehension.
