1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The 1000 Books Foundation helps facilitate the implementation of 1000 Books Before Kindergarten  reading programs nationwide and in Canada.Numerous studies over the years have demonstrated the connection between reading and early stimulation for brain development, the acquisition of key literacy and language skill as well as a child’s increased proclivity for future academic success. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics urges parents to read aloud to children daily.  The goal of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is to help guide parents and children on their paths toward developing and sustaining a healthy daily dose of reading aloud age-appropriate literature.
