1000 Books Before Kindergarten
For preschool kids
It's so simple:
Sign  up at the Children's Room desk. 
Receive your child's log book.
Log the books you read with/to your child.
Kids receive a sticker for each 100 book milestone.
They also receive rewards at the 300, 600 and 1000 book levels.
(And yes, if you read that book 57 times, you can list it 57 times. Repetition is good.)
