1000 Books Foundation
Numerous studies estimate that as many as one in five children have difficulties learning to read. Reading has been associated as an early indicator of academic success. Public formal education does not typically start until ages 5-6. Before then, parents and caregivers are the first education providers during the 0-6 early critical years. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is a simple (read a book, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 before kindergarten) and very manageable endeavor.
Our goal is to provide a simple, innovative yet fun approach to establishing strong early literacy skills. We help young children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.
Your donation creates meaningful change by helping us to keep the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge FREE and available to children across the country. The 1000 Books Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity. Your contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowable under IRS regulations.
