Did you know that in Gwinnett county 52% of our children are not prepared when they enter kindergarten? How can you help your child be ready? One easy way is to read with your child every day. That’s why we are challenging you to read 1,000 books with your child before they start kindergarten.

While 1,000 books sounds like a huge number, if you read a book before naptime and a book before bedtime, you’ll read 730 books a year! You’ll reach 1,000 in no time.
To make keeping track of your reading easy we’ve created our Kindergarten, Here We Come program in Beanstack. It’s free to join, all you need to do is create an account and you’ll be able to log every book you read with your child. Along the way you can earn badges for reading, and completing fun, early literacy activities designed by our librarians specifically to help your child be ready for kindergarten in Gwinnett County. When you reach your 1,000 book goal, come into your local library branch for your certificate of completion!
