The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten app lets you keep track of your reading activity quickly and easily.

- Scan books into your library
- Keep track of reading activity for multiple readers
- Track your progress to 1000 books!

If only it worked

I’m only at 200 books and the list will no longer load. Disappointing. My daughter loved marking her books off after she read them each night!

Idea with potential. Subpar execution

Unfortunately this app fell extremely short of what it could be. Fantastic idea, however far too glitchy, slow and not super intuitive.
Someone recommended this app to me as we are a big bookworm family and this would have been amazing to utilize properly... Severely needs an update with better design and bug flaws fixed...

App Needs An Update

The app is basic which is easy to use, however, some more functionality should be added and/or updated. Adding a book manually should be an option right off the bat with searching and scanning a book. Deleting a book should be easier. Spell check should be ‘ON’ for manually adding books and upper case letters should ‘ON’ when starting to type. Search function needs to be updated for more flexibility, currently you have to type exact titles of books. App is glitchy ALL THE TIME. Every time I use it, it either has a ‘network error’ or it crashes.
