The Big Read 2021

The goal of #TheBigRead2021 is to promote the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program, which supports early childhood literacy and encourages all parents and caregivers to read with their children.

How do you get involved? It’s very simple, on October 2, 2021:
-Go to your local library to sign up for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program or sign up on Beanstack
-Read a book to your child
-Take a picture and use the hashtag #TheBigRead2021 to post your involvement on social media (e.g., Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Snapchat / etc.)

Numerous studies have shown that parents who expose children to early language and literacy, create a bond that teaches vocabulary, introduces the connection between pictures and words, and promotes quality time spent with the people they love the most. This reinforces your role as your child’s first teacher. Parents and caregivers provide “early readers” the opportunity to have a head start which strengthens their confidence to succeed.
