Chalk the Walk
in Library Grounds
In addition to reading 1000 books with your child before they start school, this program:
What books can we read?
You can read any book your child is interested in, they do not need to be books from the Library.
What if my child wants to read the same book, over and over again?
Children learn through repetition. Each time you read a book, it counts as one book read.
Can I log the books my child hears in story time?
Yes! Any and every book your child hears read aloud can be counted in this program.
How long does this program take?
This program is designed to take 3-5 years to complete, however each family will work at their own pace.
My child is starting Kindergarten next year, can we participate?
Yes! Depending on what month it is, you may need to read at 3-7 books per day with your child to complete the program on time. If your child doesn't finish before the first day of school, that is okay. Just keep reading and check in with us once you complete the program for your child's final prize.
