1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge. The program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal and provide their children essential early literacy skills. Research shows that the most reliable predictor of school success is being read to during early childhood. Reading to children from an early age can help close the vocabulary gap and prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills they need to succeed. Sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and reading.

This program is available to all families with children between the ages of birth and five years.
