That’s a Lot of Books!
Reading 1,000 books sounds impossible… but it’s not! Reading just 3-4 books per day adds up, and you will hit that goal in no time. Best of all, repeat reads count! Reading aloud to your child is one of the best ways to help them develop early literacy skills and build a foundation for independent reading and writing. Plus, it’s an important bonding moment, too! Check out these resources to learn more about the research supporting reading aloud.
