We recently kicked off our new and improved 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, now featuring one of our favorite characters, the Very Hungry Caterpillar. This free, self-paced program encourages adults to read 1000 books with their child (ages 0-5) before they enter school. Reading together is not only fun, it also gives your child an awesome jumpstart on success in school.
The steps are super simple: read together, track your reading, and collect prizes! By reading just three stories a day, you will have read over 1000 books in one year. Any book will do, and if your child enjoys hearing the same story over and over again, you can record it each time. Stop by any La Crosse Public Library location to sign up, and help set your child up for success!
