1000 Books Before Kindergarten

This program promotes early literacy skills for children from birth to age five and encourages parent and child bonding through reading.  Sign your child up with Miss Sarah and track your progress.  See Miss Sarah for your welcome packet, which includes a new book, a reading list, and information on early child development and reading.  After each 100 book milestone, your child receives a sticker.  When your child reads 1000 books, his or her photo and name will be proudly displayed in the Desenberg Children's Corner and they will receive a book.  One book a day is 365 books read in 1 year!  Get started today!
