About this app

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 parents/caregivers keep track of their children's reading activity quickly and easily.

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

I LOVE this concept. My kiddos are currently almost 3 and just turned 1 and they both are obsessed with books. And I really *want* to love this app. But it is SO not user friendly. I think my main issue is that there is not a way to select multiple books to add to the reading list. If this was possible, that would make such a difference in user experience. Overall the app is delayed and clunky. I'm keeping it because it is my only option besides a physical notebook. But please update 🙏🏼😩

It technically does what it needs to do if all you want is a book list, but it's slow and clunky and not easy to add books. One has to click through so many steps to do anything. The times and dates are wrong and I can't find a way to edit them. It has an achievement section but it never adds achievements and we are at almost 400 books. It needs a lot of work.

This app leaves a LOT to be desired. It is incredibly slow, way too many steps to add a book, then to add said book to the reading list, no way to see how many times you've read each book just that you've read it and a total number, when you email the list it jumbles all the authors so you have to connect them back together yourself, and I've only been using it for a week and already considering going to the paper version. Love the concept. Not a fan of the technology.
