1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

GRRL invites you to participate in this free program that encourages families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their children before they enter kindergarten. Reading aloud with children builds vocabulary and language skills. Research shows that children who enter kindergarten ready to read are more likely to be successful readers!
