1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brain power? The simple and enjoyable act of sharing books helps your child build essential pre-reading skills such as understanding the sounds letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary, and building background knowledge — all important skills that help prepare your child for learning to read and entering kindergarten!

Rockville Public Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, free way to start your child on the path to success in school! Any child ages birth to five years old can participate.
