The program is simple. Read a book (any book) to your child and log it into the system. Yes, you can repeat books! When you reach a milestone, head to the library to pick up a prize! The more you read to your child, the more words they are going to learn. They will have a bigger vocabulary and understand the world better. The objectives of 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten are to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers and to encourage parent and child bonding through reading 15 minutes a day.
