Read it and Reap!
The concept is simple; the rewards are priceless!
- Read a book to your infant, toddler or preschooler.
- The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten. You can repeat books as many times as you like.
- Reading just one book a night will equal 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in 2 years and 1,095 books in three years. Since most children start kindergarten around age 5, you have more time than you think.
