Linn County Education Outreach hosts Virtual Story Time!
March 1st is Read Across Iowa Day and we are celebrating with a virtual story time at 10:00 am! Join us Live on zoom as we read the new story My Family's Dairy Farm by Katie Olthoff!
According to the Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation, “Reading to children and having books in the home is one of the strongest predictors of school success.”
Why read an agriculture book? Agriculture is essential to the economy of Iowa. By participating in our virtual story time, students will learn about a modern dairy farm through the eyes of Lucas, and 8-year-old, who helps with his family’s farm. Discover how farmers produce milk that can be made into cheese and other dairy products. The book is part of a series targeted to 3rd grade readers, but anyone can participate to celebrate Read Across Iowa Day!
