The Benbrook Public Library now offers a “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program. This program is designed to encourage families to read aloud to their children, especially those that have not yet entered Kindergarten. Research shows that the single most important activity caregivers and teachers can do to help children become successful readers is to read aloud to them every day.
Children from birth to age 5 are encouraged to participate in this on-line program. You will log the titles of the books that are read to your child. This includes Storytime!! Participants will receive prizes after 250, 500, 750, and 1000 books are read. We will have a “graduation” party for all who complete the program in August of every year.
