1,000 books BEFORE KINDERGARTEN

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!
