Having this app would have been fun, but I think I exceeded 1,000 books before kindergarten with each kiddo without the app. No time spent reading with a child is wasted. Not a second. Except maybe with those Disney Look and Find books or the Dora or Barbie books -- kidding. Seriously, just kidding -- reading together is everything, no matter if it's 1,000 different books or a few favorites on repeat.
In case you're not a fellow citizen of Pleasantville, here's the library magazine I referenced: Elmhurst Public Library's Fine Print. I am consistently impressed (and amazed, per the cover) by our friendly, professional, dedicated library staff and their ideas for programming, resources, and community outreach.
