1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a national program with a very simple goal: to create lifetime readers starting at a very early age. Reading with your child is proven to benefit development and allows you to create a family bond. Sign up to start reading and tracking your books with your little one (birth-Kindergarten) – it’s never too early! Your child will receive stickers along the way, and a certificate and gift when they reach the goal. Reading the same book again and again (as children often want to do) counts!

Get Started

You can track your reading either digitally or by using our simple printable tracker (but please stick to one or the other). This challenge is open to all Teaneck families with children from birth until Kindergarten.

Beanstack app or website for digital logging:
