The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read any book to your baby, infant and/or toddler. The goal is to read 1,000 books before your precious one starts kindergarten.
Download or pick up a reading journal at the Putnam Public Library, and every time your child reaches the goal of 100 books he/she will receive a FREE book!
