1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The Clarendon Hills Library challenges newborns, toddlers, and preschoolers to read 1,000 books before kindergarten!

Reading aloud to a child is one of the best ways to help develop important early literacy skills which will prepare them for kindergarten.  It is also a great way to bond with your child and to encourage a love of reading!

Stop by the Youth Services desk to register and to pick up your child's reading challenge activity book.  Visit the Beanstack app or website to start logging the books read!  The activity book works hand-in-hand with the Beanstack software.
