1,000 Books before Kindergarten @
the Hudson Area Public Library
1,000 Books before Kindergarten is a nationwide challenge that
encourages parents and caregivers to share stories and read aloud to their
children. Did you know that by reading just one book a night, you could reach
the 1,000-book goal in three years?
Reading is a great way to spend time
together, and you will be providing your children essential early literacy
skills. Studies have shown that children who are read to have increased
attention spans, more developed listening and language skills, and larger
vocabularies upon entering Kindergarten. Sharing stories with your child will help
to develop these vital skills, and you will be making memories that last a lifetime!
