Naturally, we needed to learn more about this program. What we found was amazing!
The 1000 Books Foundation is actually a Nevada non-profit public charity that operates for literary and educational purposes. The goal of their 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program is to promote reading to newborns, infants and toddlers, and encourages parent and child bonding through reading.
The Program is simple, but the benefits are substantial! The idea is to read at least 1,000 books with your child prior to them entering Kindergarten. Think about it, if you read one book a night to your child starting from the day they are born, you will have hit close to 2,000 books by the time they turn 5!
