How do I register?


Can we really read that many books before kindergarten?
Yes, if you read one book a day you can complete the program within three years.

Can other people read to my child besides me?
Stories read by parents, grandparents, siblings, etc. all count. you can also count books read at storytimes.

But my child wants to read the same book over and over!
The good news is that repetition is important to learning and you can count that book multiple times.
