Congratulations to Marlee Calow, 2, who just finished the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Newton Public Library.

Marlee said her favorite book was “If You Take a Mouse to School” by Laura Numeroff. Marlee received a Dr. Seuss book bag full of items to help her get ready for kindergarten and a book to keep. Congratulations Marlee on completing the 1,000 Book program.

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a program designed to encourage daily reading with children from birth. Research shows that sharing books and conversations with children builds language skills. Sharing books together contributes to the child’s healthy development, by encouraging parent/child bonding, and providing the skills children will need to be successful in school.
