This educational challenge is open to any child not-yet enrolled in Kindergarten. The goal? To read 1,000 books before kindergarten. It's easier than it sounds, and the benefits are tremendous. You'll foster important relationships with your children while boosting their early literacy skills and building solid foundations for educational success.
Tired of screens? We are still happily offering our paper logs for those who are suffering from screen fatigue.
