1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Posted on


Did you know PLDL offers a year-round, self-paced early literacy program for your children? The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program challenges parents and caregivers to read 1000 Books to their children before they start Kindergarten. Now, parents and families can participate
in the program online.

You can register for the reading challenge at pldl.org. Be sure to add your child as a reader, and set their grade level to “Babies and Toddlers” or “Preschoolers”. Use your online account to log the books your family reads for years to come. If needed, you can also record the books you
read on a paper tracking sheet available at the library’s Circulation Desk. Once your tracking sheet is full, bring it to the library to receive a prize.

Reading to your child is one of the most important ways parents and caregivers can instill a love of reading and learning in a child. Taking part in our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program encourages family bonding while your child develops the skills they’ll need to succeed in school
and beyond.

Your child will earn an online badge in Beanstack every time they reach a milestone on the way to their 1000 books goal. When they have finished 500 books, your child will receive a free book. When they have finished 1,000 books, they’ll earn a prize and a certificate.
