1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten at the Goffstown Public Library

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.

WHAT COUNTS? Everything! Every book you read counts every time you read it. Books your child hears at Story Time count. Books that others read to your child count. It all counts!

WHERE CAN I SIGN UP? Sign up in the Children’s Room. We’ll give you log sheets to help you keep count of the books you read with your child, along with rewards and incentives during your journey – including a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten tote bag after you have read your first 100 books!

WHEN: Register anytime when your child is between birth and five years old.

It’s one of the best gifts you will ever give your child … and yourself!
