1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000JPEGWe invite you to embark on a fantastic, lifelong journey with your child.  Vail Public Library is joining libraries across the nation in offering you this early literacy initiative.    Although it may sound overwhelming to imagine reading 1,000 books before Kindergarten, it is not very difficult with an early start.  At the rate of just one book per day, it takes less than three years.  What child lets you stop with just one book at bedtime?

To enroll your child, please follow this link:  When you do, you will receive a reading log and can begin your child’s reading journey.  We hope you’ll join us for Story time on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, too, as you may count the books read there, as well.  1,000 Books is simply a fun way to enjoy time together with your special little one.  We will be offering prizes along the way, as well as support in choosing appropriate books.

Here’s a fun list to help you choose:
