Raise a Great Reader
You can help your child become a great reader starting from birth! Research shows that sharing books, conversations, and songs with young children builds their language skills, contributes to their healthy development, gives them the skills they need to succeed in school, and helps them learn to love reading.
San José Public Library challenges you to share 1,000 books with your child before starting kindergarten. Reading 1,000 books is easier than you think! 3 books a day for 1 year = 1,095 books or 1 book a day for 3 years = 1,095 books.
