Your child will earn a certificate and a trophy if they meet the goal of listening to 100 books by August 11, 2018. Your eventual goal is 1000 books before kindergarten! You'll see - it's not as daunting as it sounds.

*special bonding time, cuddle up with a book
*increasing your child's vocabulary, way beyond the word "no"
*building a child's listening ability
