Register your child for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

How does it work?

Register your child online here. Then, log every book you read to your child at this website. Details are here.

 

What if my child reads the same book over and over again?
If your child is obsessed with Llama Llama, don’t force her to read something different if she’s not ready! Every time you read a book – even if it is the same book – you can log it. For instance, if you read Llama Llama six times in a row to your child, then you can log Llama Llama as six books.

 

What happens when my child reads 1000 books?

Keep reading! Your child will earn a sticker prize for every 100 books read. Once your child reads 1000 books, he will get to pick out a free book from the Children's Department at your local branch.

 

Why should I register my child for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten?

Reading books to your child, and later your child reading books herself, develops language, social, and behavioral skills.

 

1000 books sounds like a lot! I don’t think we can accomplish that.

We promise, it’s not as hard as you think! If you read 3 books every day for a year, you will have read 1,095 books. If you read 1 book every day for 3 years, you will have read 1,095 books.

 

Why is the Library doing this?

We believe it’s never to early to read. Our mission is to advance literacy, inspire lifelong learning, and strengthen our community by serving everyone in Ouachita Parish. That includes our littlest readers. Reading to young children sets them up for success in school and in life.
