  1. Thanks for the links! I'll be using these as resources! We just started 10KBK last week and have already given out 100+ folders and at least one child has already completed 50 books. I'm keeping it simple - you go through the program, you "graduate", you're done but I've also told people they can keep going even if the kids go into kindergarten etc. and I've stretched the age limit for some older siblings who were five and wanted to participate. Just part of my ongoing campaign to get the people in my town to RELAX and stop worrying about all the "rules".

  2. No problem! Feel free to use any links and share them.

    Our program is pretty laid back as well. We also have a "graduation" but the library visits continue after the family completes the program. Good luck as your program grows-- we've had so much fun!

  3. I have been thinking about doing this for our library for the last few years. I am saving your ideas for when this "idea" becomes a reality for us! Thanks so much!

  4. This point: 2. Vocabulary, in its complex existence, is of paramount importance for reading readiness. no longer has a good link. Any idea where else we can get it, the name of the article &/or the authors?

  5. Thank for the heads up, Anonymous! It looks like you mean #3. I'll find a good link.

  6. My kids and I just started this challenge today! I'm beyond excited to do this with my children. Not only will it help them with speaking and reading, but it will help them make and reach goals.

  7. Say, 5 years later what are your thoughts on the 1000 books foundation and all their stuff for sale?

    1. Truly, I don't know much about the Foundation and its use of the funds, but I do dislike when people trademark a name that's a colloquialism or others does not specifically belong to them. Unsure if that's what they've done.
