The Big Read 2017



Las Vegas, Nevada, July 2017 — The 1000 Books Foundation is proud to announce that The Big Read 2017 has been scheduled for October 2, 2017. We encourage all parents/caregivers to participate in this one-day event online event. One Day. One Book.

What is The Big Read?

The Big Read is our annual one-day, online event to kickstart early childhood reading.  We simply ask all parents/caregivers to read one book to their child. Of course, you can read as many as you wish, as you embark upon the journey of reading 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.

What’s the goal?

This worldwide campaign is coordinated by the 1000 Books Foundation, a Nevada-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity in partnership with other nonprofit partners. The goal of The Big Read is to promote the importance of early childhood literacy and inspire all parents & caregivers to read with their children.

Why should people care about The Big Read?

Numerous studies have proven that children who are exposed to reading early in life do better in school. Thus, not only will you gain quality quite time with your child, you will be giving them a head start and grow their confidence to succeed.

How do I get involved?

It’s very simple, on October 2, 2017, read a book to your child. Then use the hashtag #TheBigGive2017 to post your involvement on social matter (e.g, Facebook/Twitter/Instagram, etc.)  We also ask, if you’re able, to please donate a dollar to the 1000 Books Foundation so that we can continue to innovate, grow and inspire children all over the world!

If you or your organization want to get further involved with The Big Read, please contact Ms. Jerrice Moore, community@1000BooksFoundation.org

EduWear has Teamed up with the 1000 Books Foundation to Promote a New Line of Interactive Clothing

South Euclid, OH, February 2017 – To enhance your child’s reading experience, EduWear™ (www.eduwearonline.com) and the 1000 Books Foundation (www.1000BooksBeforeKindergarten.org) have teamed up to celebrate your child’s reading milestones. Eduwear has created the official “I have read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten” T-shirt with removable patches to help commemorate your child’s 1000 books reading milestones (100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, and 1000).

“We are very excited to be partnering with the 1000 Books Foundation to help spread the message of the importance of early childhood literacy.” said Nikki Mace of EduWear.

“Partnering with EduWear was a natural fit (excuse the pun). Both EduWear and the 1000 Books Foundation realize that a child’s brain develops the most rapidly from birth to age 5. EduWear’s interactive clothing line is a fun and exciting way for a parent/caregiver to tap into his or her child’s genius,” said Diane Lee of 1000 Books Foundation.

EduWear introduces language in unique ways, by providing fun and innovative educational products.

Luh & Associates Expands Partnership with 1000 Books Foundation to Support the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Early Childhood Literacy Program

2016-07-20_004153543_6B597_iOS

Las Vegas, Nevada, July 2016 — The law firm of Luh & Associates (www.luhlaw.com) is proud to announce its inaugural year of giving to the North Las Vegas Library District through the 1000 Books Foundation.

The 1000 Books Foundation is a Nevada 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, which was founded in 2013 to promote reading to newborns, infants and toddlers and seeks to encourage parent-child bonding through reading.   The 1000 Books Foundation helps facilitate the implementation of 1000 Books Before Kindergarten (www.1000BooksBeforeKindergarten.org) reading programs nationwide and in Canada.

Numerous studies over the years have demonstrated the connection between reading and early stimulation for brain development, the acquisition of key literacy and language skill as well as a child’s increased proclivity for future academic success. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics urges parents to read aloud to children daily.  The goal of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is to help guide parents and children on their paths toward developing and sustaining a healthy daily dose of reading aloud age-appropriate literature.

“Literacy is the most important skill that a student can have for academic success, and children should be introduced to books as early as possible. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program was created to teach parents about the importance of Early Childhood Literacy through an engaging reading incentive program. The ultimate goal is to ensure that young students are at or above reading level by the time they enter Kindergarten,” said Forrest Lewis, Director of the North Las Vegas Library District (www.nlvld.org).

In addition to being a founding and sustaining sponsor of the 1000 Books Foundation, Luh & Associates will be donating 500 activity journals, 200 t-shirts, and a variety of other educational materials to the North Las Vegas Library District promoting the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge.

“I regularly speak on behalf of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge nationwide. Our gift to the North Las Vegas Library District is especially near and dear to me because my law firm has served the local community since 2003 and we remain committed to engaging the youngest children of our community,” said Charlie H. Luh, Managing Partner of Luh & Associates.

Luh & Associates is a Las Vegas-based law firm that was founded in April, 2003 with a commitment to providing cost-effective legal representation. Luh & Associates is a Martindale-Hubbell AV-rated law firm and is listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.
