Why Read 1,000 Books?
Reading with your child at home helps to develop vocabulary, increases interest in printed words, and helps develop a positive attitude about reading. By reading to your child, you are helping your child learn the skills they need to become a reader.
Who Can Read?
This program is for any child who has not yet entered kindergarten. How Long Does It Take? There is no time limit to this program. Take as much or as little time as you need to read 1,000 books to your child. By reading three books a day, you can finish this program in one year. It takes about 20 minutes to read three books.
How Do We Keep Track of the Books?
Record the title of every book you read in your ReadSquared account. Repetition is good for young children because it gives them the opportunity to find something new in a much loved story, so feel free to record the same title over and over again!
