1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Parents, did you know that reading to your child when they are young is one of the best ways to encourage their future success in school? The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program provides an easy way for parents to track the books you read to your baby or preschooler.
Reading 1,000 books may sound difficult, but the entire program can be completed in as little as one year by reading just three books each night at bedtime, and reading the same book multiple times is great for your child's development!
You can track the number of books you read to your child online with our Virtual Reading Challenge site, or using the Beanstack app. You'll earn digital badges along the way, and receive a free book after completing the 1,000 Books program! If you participated in last year's Summer Reading Program, you can log-in using the same username and password you used for Beanstack last year.
