The St. Joseph County Public Library has just joined the ‘1000 Books Before Kindergarten,’ a nationwide literacy and school readiness program.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a pretty simple concept. Parents track each book they read to their young children with the goal of reading at least 1000 books before they start school.
That breaks down to just over one book every two days for five years.
