100 BOOKS Before Kindergarten for 5 & UNDER

The concept is simple and the rewards priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler and keep track of the titles in your online account. 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.
Free t-shirt for registering for the program. Supplies are limited.

Benefits include:
*special bonding time, cuddle up with a book
*increasing your child's vocabulary, way beyond the word "no"
*building a child's listening ability
*a head start as they prepare and ready for kindergarten with an extensive vocabulary, exposure to varied concepts, and pre-reading skills mastered
*teaching the child how to visualize a story and interpret text
*easy way to keep a log of family favorites for life-long memories

Please give us a call if you FORGET YOUR PASSWORD and we can reset it.
