Vincent Gearhart has reached the100 book level in Akron Carnegie Public Library's new program, 1000 Books before Kindergarten Program. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten promotes reading to newborns, infants and toddlers while encouraging parent and child bonding through reading. The challenge is a simple and very manageable endeavor: read a book, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 before kindergarten. Patrons who read one book a night will have read 365 books in a year, 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years.
