Join now! If you read just one book a night starting before your child is 2, you will have read over 1,000 books by the time your child starts kindergarten! Our program makes it fun, with incentives for every milestone you reach–1 book, 25 books, 100 books, 250 books, 500 books, 750 books and 1,000 Books. The program is intended for children under the age of 5 years.

The One Thousand Books Before Kindergarten initiative is designed to:

  • Promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers.
  • Encourage parent and child bonding through reading.
  • Help young children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.

Studies show that children who are read to from birth have an easier time learning to read.

You can sign up and log your progress here:

You can also track your progress with the Beanstack Tracker mobile app which is available for both iOS and Android. The mobile app includes the ability to scan the barcode from the back of the book for easy logging.
