Anyone with an El Paso Library card can register their child from the day he or she is born to the day he or she enters Kindergarten. Register at the Children’s Library Desk and receive your 1,000 books bag and reading log. Each time you read a book with your child, record it on your reading log. Every 100 books, return your reading log to the Children’s Library Desk to claim your reading reward. The rewards are stickers for some goals and books to take home and keep for others.
If you read one book per day, it will take 3 years to complete the goal. If you read 3 books per day, it will take one year. Read whatever amount works for your family. The program runs all year at the library, the only requirement is that all rewards be redeemed before the child’s first day of Kindergarten.
Even if you and your child don’t make the 1000 book goal, wouldn’t it be fun to try? The days when you get to read to your child are so precious and the time goes fast. The ‘reading to your child’ stage may become one of your favorite lifetime memories.
