Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brain power? The simple and enjoyable act of sharing books helps your 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 your child for learning to read and entering kindergarten.
Wilcox Public Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success! Any child ages birth to five years can participate. Just follow these steps:
Singing songs, saying rhymes, telling stories, and playing with your child are all great ways to build their literacy skills. Visit the Library often for free programs that are fun and educational for your little one and to find great books to share with your child.
One thousand books may seem impossible, however, if you read just one book a night, you’ll meet your goal in less than 3 years. If you read three books a night, you could reach your goal in just one year! But don't feel rushed!
Ask our friendly staff for suggestions—we’re here to help you on your journey to 1,000 Books before Kindergarten! Happy Reading!
