To begin your journey through 1,000 books.

The Balsam Lake Public Library will be offering a free program encouraging you to read 1,000 books to your child before he/she enters school - a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves.

One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading to your child helps develop pre-reading skills that provide a solid foundation - a key to school a learning success

Is it possible to read 1,000 books to your child before Kindergarten?

1 book per day x 3 years = 1,095 books

10 books per week x 2 years = 1,040 books

3 books per day x 1 year = 1,095 books
