Third Thursday Together - 4-H Cloverbud Reading Adventures
Research shows that children who are read just one book a day from birth to kindergarten results in them hearing almost 300,000 words by the time they start school. We also know that sometime books help us begin difficult conversations with children. Join Ohio Cloverbud Design Team members to explore Ohio’s Cloverbud Reading Adventures. These easy-to-use resources for Cloverbud volunteers help promote literacy by connecting Cloverbuds to a book and complementary activities. A collection of approximately 20 books is currently available as free downloads with more books being added. During this session, presenters will highlight the books Ada Twist Scientist, A Kid in a Medieval Castle and The Day the Crayons Came Home by sharing related elated activities. They will also talk about the importance of literacy. Presenters will also briefly discuss Ohio’s other Cloverbud Resources.
