How It Works

Does reading the same book over and over count?

YES!  Children love (and learn through) repetition.  If you read the same book 3 times, record it 3 times.

What books can I read?

Any books you want to read.  You can read books from home, the library, anything!  Books that your child listens to in storytimes at the library also count.  We’re also here to help you find books that you and your child will enjoy.

FUN FACT: Reading just 3 books a night, you could reach 1,095 books in 1 year!  The only goal though is to reach 1,000 books before kindergarten starts, so take your time reading with your child and enjoy.

1,000 books reading log to print at home!
