1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Presented by: Idea Place @ Westhampton Free Library


For children birth-5 years old with parent/caregivers.


1,000 Books before Kindergarten (also known as 1KB4K), is a new early literacy experience that we are now offering for children and families. This new reading experience that we are offering encourages families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their children before they enter Kindergarten. I know what you’re thinking. “What if we don’t finish?” That’s okay! There are NO RULES. You can go at your own pace.


Sign up now! You can come in to the Idea Place, or you can sign up from home through the Idea Place blog (Remember, if you sign up from home, come in to the Idea Place to pick up your 1KB4K Kit and Registration Prize.


At the Idea Place we want to partner with parents to give children a reading experience which will only prepare them before reaching Kindergarten. By simply reading aloud to children from birth, it will build strong vocabulary skills as well as strengthen their language skills. Together, we could provide children with the opportunity to have a concrete foundation to succeed not only through Kindergarten but throughout the continuation of their schooling years.

Be your child’s first and best teacher and instill the lifelong love of reading!
