One event on November 7, 2018 at 4:15 pm

Location: Children’s Program Room

Come read & grow with us!  Drop-in to celebrate the kickoff of our 1000 Books before Kindergarten program with a cool dance party!  We will be giving out posters & instructions to get you started with your reading!

Why 1000 Books before Kindergarten?  Parents & caregivers are children’s first educators and by reading aloud to your child you are building early literacy skills as early as birth! the more you read to your child the more language, songs, sounds, gestures & words they are exposed to.  The 1000 Books before Kindergarten challenge is to simply encourage you to read a book, any book to your child with the goal of getting to 1000 books before they start kindergarten.

New Canaan Library is happy to support you in this journey by providing a tree chart & stickers to track your progress along with an online site & app that will make keeping track for your titles easy! Also, we are happy to make age appropriate recommendations of our favorite books.
