800 Books Down – 200 to go!

We are approaching the END of 1000 Books before Kindergarten!

It’s felt like a long haul some times, but little by little, we’ve kept on reading to our kids and religiously filling out those reading logs.

Along the way, there have been incentives for the kids. Free paperback books, and stickers that say “This book belongs to.”  Here are two books we received from the program:

Books that my kids picked out for their "listening" to so many stories.

As I mentioned in the first post, I am into this program! I love the quite time that reading to my kids brings, and I hope to instill within them a love of books and reading.  To my delight, I will find them snuggled up with books from time to time.

Love seeing them snuggled into a chair together looking at books.

In these pictures they were reading “old books” that had old book smell.  As I wrote about in my Fly on the Wall post, my daughter asked if books took baths.

For the record, they also partake in “wrestling” and do not simply sit quietly and read all day.

What reading programs do you do with your kids? What are your favorite children’s books?
