1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program to encourage early literacy. Reading to your child is the best way to prepare him or her for Kindergarten. Reading aloud will help them become better readers, build their speech and language skills, expand their vocabulary, strengthen their listening skills, help them with grammar and correct sentence structure, build their attention spans, develop their imaginations and curiosity and give them positive attention that they crave.
The Reedsburg Public Library’s 1,000 Books before Kindergarten program can be started at any time with any child not yet in Kindergarten by picking up a folder at the checkout desk. Adults keep track of the books read and children receive incentives along the way. The final prize is an ABC Bingo game. Graduates may also choose to have their photo featured in the Reedsburg Independent.
For more information, contact the Reedsburg Public Library at 768-READ(7323).
Congratulations to our 1000 Books Graduates!
