Program offers children chance to read 1000 books before kindergarten

Posted: Updated:

LODI (WKOW) -- Reading 1000 books before kindergarten is the goal of the Lodi Public Library.

A new program focuses on the challenge for children and their families. It's an on-going literacy initiative designed to help parents build early learning skills for their young children. The program is designed for children from the time they're born to their very first day of school.

If families read one book per night they'll reach 1000 books in three years. Two-year-old Brody Ryan and his family were the first in the community to complete the challenge.

Each 100 books Brody and his parents read he gets to put a star on the reading wall.

Organizers say if reading doesn't come naturally and it's not part of your daily routine this program can help. It also helps with math and science skills as your children get ready for full time school.
