When children love to read, they’re more successful at school. Get the little ones in your life ready to read with Ritter’s new “Thousand Books Before Kindergarten” program.
Parents, grandparents and other caregivers can pick up their first 100-book reading log to get started on the goal of reading 1,000 books with their children before they begin kindergarten.
Here’s how it works: Read a book to your baby or toddler. Keep it fun and hold him or her if you’re able. If your child learns early to associate reading with pleasure, she is more likely to enjoy reading on her own when she is older. Yes, you can repeat books and yes, you can read to more than one child at a time.
How long will it take? If you read just one book a night, and you skip a few nights, you will have read about 350 books in a year. That’s 700 books in two years and 1,050 books in three years. As most children start kindergarten at around 5 years old, you have more time than you think!
Logs are available now at the children’s desk.
