Record Book Forms
If you are new to 4-H and record books, see this post for an explanation of what record books are and why the 4-H organization takes them so seriously. I’ve also listed why homeschoolers should take advantage of record books to further their kids’ learning and growth in 4-H, I hope you find it useful.
Clicking on the below links will take you to the California 4-H website and download forms directly (can also go to main page here: Record Book forms, manual and help

Warning, the list is long and comprehensive, and thus, a bit overwhelming. To make it easier, I’ve uploaded the most important documents for record books to the left.
