1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (RR)
Ages 0-5
Reading with your newborn, infant, or toddler is not only a great way to help them become a successful reader later in life, but is also a fun way to bond with your child.  If you read just one book a night, you will read about 365 books in one year - at that rate you will reach 1,000 books in under 3 years!

Does your child want to read the same book again and again? The same book counts every time you read it! Is a sibling or caregiver reading with your child? That counts too! Keep track of the books you read with your child through Beanstack's online platform or app.  Create an account or log on at  Don't have a way to access the Internet? Come in and pick up a paper version of challenge. Let us help you celebrate as you reach reading milestones - earn digital badges and fun prizes!
