Read 1000 books before Kindergarten

Mohave County Library in Bullhead City challenges you to read 1,000 books with your child before kindergarten! How does the program work? • First, visit your nearest Mohave County Library to sign up and pickup your first log sheet. • Read and record all the books you share. These can even be books that you listen to in storytime, or books that an older sibling reads. Have a favorite book? Record it every time you read it together. • Once you finish 100 books, bring in your completed log to receive a free book, and pick up your next log sheet. • After you finish 1,000 books, your child will receive a brand new book! • The program is FREE and open to any children from birth until they enter kindergarten. • 1,000 books might seem impossible, but if you read just one story every day, you’ll have 1,095 in three years! • More than one child in the program? You can count the same book for each child. • The program is not a contest to see who can finish the fastest. Reading together is a great way to build early literacy skills and to help prepare your child for school. Visit the Bullhead City library kids area to sign up or www.1000booksbeforekindergarten.org for more information.
