1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten ties into the nationwide, early literacy program 1000 Books Before Kindergarten that will help your child be ready for school. Parents of kids from birth to age 5 are encouraged to participate. Reading logs can be picked up at the library.

After parents or caregivers read aloud 100 books kids will receive a Super Reader T-shirt and a free book. Keep reading beyond 100 books and continue to win prizes! The prize for 1000 Books is a Super Reader Cape, handmade especially for your child! Reading aloud to kids is the number one best way to prepare them for school and a lifetime of learning.

Find out more information about this nationwide effort to read aloud. This program is funded in part by a partnership with Smart Beginnings and is endorsed by Tazewell County Public Schools.
