Saskatoon Public Library is pleased to welcome you to 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. Enjoy reading 1000 times with your little ones and help them develop strong literacy skills before Kindergarten! Reading to your child every day helps build their literacy skills and helps them prepare for school. Your child’s first and best teacher is you! By reading just three books a day you can read 1000 books to your child in one year.
Early literacy is everything that children know about reading and writing before they can read and write. Recognizing print, letters and numbers, rhyming, vocabulary, narrative skills, and the motivation to read are literacy skills that children can start learning from birth.

1000 Books can be used for all ages. You’re never too young or too old to read more. You’ll collect badges for every 100 books read. Log a book each time you read it, even if it is one you have read before. With every badge, you will receive a new literacy tip and a fun activity to help you and your little one celebrate your great work.
