Plano Public Library is joining with 1000 Books Before Kindergarten to encourage parents and caregivers to read aloud to newborns, infants, and/or toddlers. Reading regularly to your preschooler helps prepare them for success in kindergarten.
The early literacy goal: Read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten! (If you read just one book a night, you will have read 365 books in a year…that’s 1,095 books in 3 years!)
Pick up a reading log at any Plano library, track online using the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten app, or do what works best for you. For every 100 books read, come to the library for a sticker and take a milestone photo. Once you reach 1,000 books, you’ll receive a certificate and free book!
