On our way to 1,000 books!

Congratulations to our very first young patron to reach not only the 100 books read milestone but also the first to reach the 200 books read milestone!

Samantha keep reading and enjoying books on your fantastic journey to
 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.

Reading Suggestions:
  • Have fun!  Reading should never be a chore.  It is an enjoyable time to bond with your child sharing stories both new and old.
  • Expose your child to a variety of stories, rhymes and songs. This introduces your child to new vocabulary and concepts. 
  • Don't forget non-fiction books count too! They are a fabulous way to learn about, and gain information on subjects or topics that interest them.
Keep reading! 
 Visit the Children's Room to show us your log and receive a reward at each 100 book milestone.

Join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program!  This free program encourages you and your child to enjoy 1,000 books together before your child starts kindergarten - a goal many experts say will help your children learn to read and succeed.  Just one book a day for a year equals 365 books, 730 books in two years, an 1,095 books in three years! 

Ongoing registration is for children from Birth through Age 5, not yet enrolled in kindergarten.
Visit the Children's Room and pick up your book log.  After logging 100 books your child will receive a prize and a reading log for the next 100 books.
A book can be read more than once - repeated reading of favorite books is encouraged!
Upon completion of the program your child will receive a special certificate.

The Children's Room has been busy every day of the week with enthusiastic readers participating in the Reading Club and attending a host of lively events.  On July 26th, Jason, from Green Meadows Farm,  introduced the children to many small critters and animal babies, with fascinating facts and lots of humor. Children got to pet many of the animals, but  the highlight for most of us was when Jason kissed the bullfrog!
