Reading to your child is the single most important activity that prepares your child to become a reader.
For children not yet in Kindergarten, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten® promotes the importance of reading to children from birth. Families joining this club pledge to read 1000 books to their child before the first day of kindergarten. The library hosts a celebration each August for families completing the program.
Getting started is easy. Simply download the registration form here and bring it to the library at your convenience.
Can’t wait to get started. Download the first reading log here. You and child color a circle each time you read or reread a book. When complete, stop by the Peru Library for the next log.
