Nora Anglemyer has done at a young age what many of us have never done, she has read 1,000 books and all before she reaches kindergarten. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is designed to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers as well as to encourage parent and child bonding through reading.
Libraries all across the country participate in this program to introduce children to reading at a young age before formal education begins One of the goals of the program is to provide a simple, innovative yet fun approach to establishing strong early literacy skills and to help young children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.

As children read books, they are rewarded with prizes that begin with stickers and increase to books and other items. When a child finishes 1,000 books they are given a book tote bag, a certificate, and their photo in the Thorp Courier to share with the community this wonderful accomplishment.

Congratulations Nora on reading 1,000 books before kindergarten!
