1,000 Things Before Kindergarten

A School Readiness Project

Why 1,000 things? 
Reading, writing, singing, playing and talking with your child helps young brains develop like little muscles, getting bigger and stronger the more you and your family interact with your child. We have created a challenge for you and your family based upon the five basic pillars of parenting. The Basics are five fun, simple, and powerful ways to help all our children aged 0-5 grow to be happy and smart.

Participants earn a free book to keep at every 100 books read or activities completed.

DaybyDayVA.org , a day by day web calendar of suggested activities and books

www.kidsliteracy.org , a similar site published by our partner, the Soho Center.

The book prizes were donated by the Kiwanis of Botetourt County. Other associated costs are funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Library of Virginia.
