In celebration of National Agriculture Week (March 19-23, 2018), volunteers throughout the state will read a book with an agricultural theme to second graders. Students and teachers will also benefit from hands-on lessons and receive follow up activities. The book will be given to the school library with a bookplate recognizing the donor and NY Ag Literacy Week. Last year, 2,000 books were read to over 52,000 students across New York State.

Start to Finish the program takes about 30 minutes per classroom.
All activity materials are prepared by NYAITC and schools get to keep a copy of the book for their school or classroom library.
