This popular early literacy program aims at encouraging parents to read one-thousand books to their child before they enter kindergarten.

Read to your child every day

From magazine and newspaper articles to books in preschool or library story time, all reading counts. Duplicate books count too.

Track what you read

While all 1,000 Books before Kindergarten materials are freely available from the website, tracking 1,000 books is easier through our Beanstack application.

Celebrate landmarks

Every 100 books, parents are encouraged to post a photo of their child on social media with the hashtag #1000BooksB4K.
