Luh & Associates Extends Partnership with 1000 Books Foundation to Support the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Early Childhood Literacy Program
Las Vegas, Nevada, January 2018 – Through the 1000 Books Foundation, the law firm of Luh & Associates (www.luhlaw.com) has chosen the St. Rose Dominican Health Foundation (www.supportstrose.org) as its Year of Giving recipient.
Luh & Associates will be donating 360 copies of 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten: A Promise and A Pledge and 300 copies of 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten: My Journey to 1,000 Books. The gift is unconditional and the goal is to place a book and a keepsake journal in the hands of newborn babies born in the Las Vegas Valley.
There is a solid connection between reading and early stimulation for brain development in younger children. The acquisition of crucial literacy and language skills is essential for their future academic success. Keeping this importance of early education in perspective, the 1000 Books Foundation was founded in 2013 to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers and seeks to encourage parent-child bonding through reading. Public formal education does not typically start until ages 5-6. Before then, parents and caregivers are the first education providers during the 0-5 early critical years. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge (www.1000BooksBeforeKindergarten.org) is a simple and very manageable endeavor—read a book, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 before kindergarten.
“Literacy is truly empowering and one of the greatest gifts anyone can receive” said Natasha Meinecke of the St. Rose Dominican Health Foundation, while talking about the early childhood literacy and its importance. “We welcome this partnership that will benefit many children,” she added.
“Both of my children were born in Las Vegas hospitals. My oldest niece was born in a St. Rose Dominican hospital. We remain committed to the Las Vegas community and are really excited to partner with the St. Rose Dominican Health Foundation to help bring the gift of reading to newborns,” said Charlie H. Luh, Managing Partner of Luh & Associates.
The 1000 Books Foundation invites other organizations to take part and to help bring the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten early literacy challenge to their communities.

Las Vegas, Nevada, July 2016 — The law firm of Luh & Associates (www.luhlaw.com) is proud to announce its inaugural year of giving to the North Las Vegas Library District through the 1000 Books Foundation.
The 1000 Books Foundation is a Nevada 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, which was founded in 2013 to promote reading to newborns, infants and toddlers and seeks to encourage parent-child bonding through reading. The 1000 Books Foundation helps facilitate the implementation of 1000 Books Before Kindergarten (www.1000BooksBeforeKindergarten.org) reading programs nationwide and in Canada.
Numerous studies over the years have demonstrated the connection between reading and early stimulation for brain development, the acquisition of key literacy and language skill as well as a child’s increased proclivity for future academic success. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics urges parents to read aloud to children daily. The goal of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is to help guide parents and children on their paths toward developing and sustaining a healthy daily dose of reading aloud age-appropriate literature.
“Literacy is the most important skill that a student can have for academic success, and children should be introduced to books as early as possible. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program was created to teach parents about the importance of Early Childhood Literacy through an engaging reading incentive program. The ultimate goal is to ensure that young students are at or above reading level by the time they enter Kindergarten,” said Forrest Lewis, Director of the North Las Vegas Library District (www.nlvld.org).
In addition to being a founding and sustaining sponsor of the 1000 Books Foundation, Luh & Associates will be donating 500 activity journals, 200 t-shirts, and a variety of other educational materials to the North Las Vegas Library District promoting the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge.
“I regularly speak on behalf of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge nationwide. Our gift to the North Las Vegas Library District is especially near and dear to me because my law firm has served the local community since 2003 and we remain committed to engaging the youngest children of our community,” said Charlie H. Luh, Managing Partner of Luh & Associates.
