1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The concept is simple, but 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 books!) before your little one starts Kindergarten.  Does it sound hard?  Not really if you think about it.  If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year.  That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years.  If you consider that most children start Kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started!).

The key is perseverance.  Make it exciting.  Most of all be creative!
