1000 Books Before Kindergarten


1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program that encourages families to read 1000 books to their children before they start Kindergarten. You can even repeat books! Simply log the books you read with your child and for each 100 books you read, you’ll earn a free book and sticker from DTDL .

There are a variety of ways you can log books so you can choose what works best for your family:
  • Use DTDL’s coloring sheet log (color in the circles as you read books) or book log (list each book you read).
  • Use DTDL’s Beanstack website or app – you may already have an account if you participated in our online Summer Reading Program!
  • Use the 1000 Books app (available in App Store & Google Play).
  • Or simply keep track on your own on paper or electronically.

To use one of DTDL’s logs, stop by the Youth Desk or call 517-321-4014 x3 and we can provide you with one to get started.

Stop by the Youth Desk or give us a call each time you reach a hundred-book milestone, and we’ll get your book and sticker to you in person or with carside pickup. For past participants, we can also get you caught up on any milestones you reached since March 2020.

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is sponsored by Eaton Great Start.
