1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Giving Young Children the Tools to Become Successful Readers1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a new Library program that encourages all Washington County families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten.

Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary — two important tools when they begin learning to read in kindergarten.

How does 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten work?

  • Register – At any Washington County Library, and take home your first reading log.
  • Track Your Reading – Each time you read a book with your child, fill in a circle on the reading log.
  • Show us Your Reading Logs – When you reach 25 books, bring in your reading log, and get a small prize! At the first 100 books, you get a really cool tote bag for carrying all those books. And at each 100-books mark, you get a sticker.
  • Read More Books! – When you reach 1,000 books, you’ll receive a signed copy of one of Utah author, Rick Walton’s picture books.

Reading Superheroes

Reading SuperheroesOlder children who read to younger children are Reading Superheroes!

Each Reading Superhero who reads 25 books to a younger child enrolled in 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten will also receive a small prize (Limit: One prize per reading log).
