1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Walpole CFCE is holding kick-off presentations at local libraries, complete with a 1000 Books journal and a book to get families started. Look for the 1000 Books app to record your books online - it's simple to just scan!
