1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

A Reading Challenge for You to Complete with Your Little Ones!

Can your child read 1,000 books before they start Kindergarten? It's easier than you think! Our new reading incentive program allows you to bond with your child(ren) ages birth - 5 years old while helping them establish strong early literacy skills by reading aloud.

Register for the challenge on Beanstack and track your child's progress in the app as you read books together. Earn rewards for different milestones as you go, and when your child reaches their goal of 1,000 books they can make their mark on our new 1000 Books Before Kindergarten banners at the Libraries by placing their handprint on our Trees of Literacy!

Enter the challenge on osceolalibrary.beanstack.org or through the app to get started.

Read Your First Books with Your Storytime Friends!
