Add this Event to Calendar 04/15/2020 09:00 AM 04/15/2020 09:00 AM 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

.

For all kids from birth up through entering kindergarten.

The single most important thing you can do to prepare your children to read is to read to them every day. Research proves that children need to hear 1000 books before they begin to learn to read independently.

Reading to children will: increase their vocabulary, increase their listening and narrative skills, help to instill in them self-awareness and confidence, impart an understanding of their place in the world.

Registration is required here at goffstownlibrary.com/calendar. After your child has read their first 100 books, one of the rewards and incentives for this program is a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten tote bag! Please email at any time if you have questions about this program during the stay-at-home order from Governor Sununu.

Download & Print: Title Log (for parents), and Color-In Log (for kids).
