You are your child’s first teacher and your home is where your child begins to learn. When you talk, sing, read, write, and play, you are helping your child get ready to read. Children who are read to at an early age will be better prepared to learn. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Jesup Public Library is designed to be simple and encourage making reading a daily habit.
TO REGISTER for this program, simply stop by the library or sign up online at Paper reading logs are available at the library or use the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten app, available in your app store or on iTunes. With the app, you simply scan the publisher barcode on the back of the book (the library barcode) to keep track of the books that you have read to your child. When your paper log is full, or you reach the 100 level on your phone app, stop by the library and your child will receive a prize for those 100 books; we will chart their completion of level one, and you will receive a new log with space to record the next 100 books. The program has no end date except your child’s starting Kindergarten, so don’t feel that you need to rush — but rather enjoy this experience! 1000 is not a magic number, just a fun goal for you and your child to reach!
