At only 22 months, Megan Bostock is the first Collie child in 2019 to read 1000 books before kindy.

Through the Child and Parent Centre Collie-Valley's 1000 Books B4K challenge, Megan and her parents tore through the challenge in only five months as the budding book worm's love for books and reading grew.

Proud mum Ash Bostock said the goal was accomplished in record time by going through 50 books a week.

"I'm a big reader myself and I was just looking for something for Megan and I to do together and I stumbled across this," she said.

"When she gets up now, if you leave the study door open she's straight in there grabbing books out and she's ever insistent.

"It's improved her language she strings little sentences together rather than just words."
