The Ada Public Library has kicked off the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program!
The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. In an attempt to spread the love of reading, and also encourage a successful start to your child’s education, we encourage you to embark on 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. Sounds daunting, but if you read just 1 book/day, that’s 365 books in 1 year, 730 books in 2 years, or 1,095 books in 3 years.
According to the American Library Association’s United for Libraries, A study of 3- to 5-year-olds who had been read to at least three times per week found the children:
• Two times more likely to recognize all letters
• Two times more likely to have word-sight recognition
• Two times more likely to understand words in context
Skills that increase a child’s chances for future educational success!
So, please consider signing your child/children up for this wonderful program! Stop by the Ada Public Library for your reading log and rules.
