Kids Reading Challenges and Tips
The Library offers a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, encouraging all Wixom families and caregivers to read 1000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten. Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary. There will be prizes for kids when they read 100, 500, 800 and 1000 books. They can also receive a special sticker for every 100 books read. Just register your child on our Beanstack site or through the Beanstack Tracker app. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program will appear as a program as soon as you sign in!
