1,000 books BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
The Downers Grove Public Library challenges you to participate in the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program!
Reading aloud with a child is one of the most important things a caregiver can do to help prepare them for Kindergarten. Reading aloud introduces children to new words and concepts, helps them learn about letters and sounds, and teaches them how print and stories work. It’s also a great way to bond with children and to encourage a love of reading!
