When P was about 3, she joined a program at the local library. She (and I) pledged to read 1000 books before Kindergarten (which is this fall). We are at book #917 and we seem to be going in slow motion! We read approximately 30 books a week, so we should be done within the month. I will post an update when she gets there.
As a side note, we got the set of books below for P to practice reading. The set is great, it comes with quite a few books and she can read or at least sound out most of the words without getting frustrated….which usually ends badly, so they seem to be appropriate for her level. Amazon has the set relatively inexpensively.
