The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.

It's a good idea, but if I had to find 1,000 different children's books and read them all out loud, I would have gone out of my mind. I had a child who could read in preschool, so I avoided having to do that.

I read a lot to each of my kids ... and I actually managed to teach them small words before they started school.  And as much as I read to them, I don't think I managed 1000 books.

I read a lot too but nowhere near 1,000.  They often wanted to hear the same booo over and over again.

Might leave the adult's mind so used to thinking at that level as to be incapable of raising the child. :-)

Just kidding, but that much repetition must have some kind of effect.

I learned to read better.  I learned to pick better books and to read them more difficult books.

You mean aloud, intonation and that sort of thing? I've never had occasion to read much aloud, and never got good at it.
