1000 Books: Why?

Winter Public Library, a recipient of a Growing Wisconsin Readers mini-grant, created this simple flyer that explains 1000 Books to new participants.  Connecting family literacy (reading together) to school success (learning to read) is an important message to communicate.

Text from the Growing Wisconsin Readers brochure and website can assist you in your messaging.  For example:

Looking at books with your child every day is one of the most important things you can do for her/his future. Sharing books together strengthens your child's foundation for learning. Pointing at pictures in a book, saying rhymes, singing songs, writing words, and playing together makes your child more ready for school. Your baby's ability to learn grows from interacting with you, not a screen or educational toy.
