    The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your child starts kindergarten. Any child from birth until he or she enters kindergarten can participate. The program is self-paced and will depend on how often you read together.

    Instructions: Read with your child. Keep track of titles and authors on the given forms. When your child reaches a milestone (signing up; 100, 300, 500, 700, 900, and 1000 books), come to FPL with your filled-in sheet and we will give him/her a small reward, and they will watch their little bookworm
