One Thousand Books Before Kindergarten

Too big to fit in one picture!!  Our race track is busy with more waiting to get in the race!

The only rules we have is for you to document how many books have been read to your child and that your child is not yet in kindergarten. Any and everyone can read to your preschooler and all you have to do is make a tally mark on the bright green paper. Once there are 100 tallies, bring the paper in to the Library to move the car down the track and your child picks a prize. You can read 1,000 different books or one book 1,000 times. Remember, those tally marks are verification, so don’t forget to bring in some proof of how many books you’ve read! Get everyone involved! Sign up today, it will go a lot faster than you think!

Just how long does it take to read 1,000 books? Well, someone, somewhere figured it out for us: 1 book per day for 3 years = 1,000 books; 10 books per week for 2 years = 1,040 books; 3 books per day for 1 year = 1,095 books. So, not long at all!
