4-H Military Family Book Sheets

March 27, 2015

The 4-H Military Family Book Sheets help parents and guardians find books and activities to help their children during various stages of their service members’ deployments. Each book sheet contains a summary of the book, author and publication details, and activities that they can use with their children pre-, during or post-deployment to extend the message of the book. To find each book, check with your local library, bookstore or online retailer.
MSU Extension is now offering FREE QR code linked family and military family book sheets for some of the most popular and highly recommended children's books. Libraries, child care centers, teachers and early childhood professionals can place these QR code linked labels inside the cover of the corresponding book. Parents or caregivers with a smart phone or tablet can scan the QR code and receive a free family book sheet. For information about the QR code project or to request the materials, visit 4-H Military and Family Book Sheet QR Code Project Information.
4-H Military Partnerships and Operation: Military Kids proudly present an updated book list of recommended titles for military children and youth. The book list contains recommended titles for different age groups, a short summary of the book and a QR code that can be scanned to receive a free 4-H military family book sheet.
