1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program

Reading to a child is one of the most powerful ways to boost their skills. The simple and enjoyable act of sharing books helps a child learn pre-reading skills such as understanding the sounds letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary, and building background knowledge — all important skills that help prepare a child for learning to read and entering kindergarten. Join us at Stevens for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading incentive program for children ages birth to 5 years. Visit the Children’s Room to get more information about the program and check out some books. If you read just 3 books a day you will reach the 1,000 books goal in one year!
