Daddy and Me

Daddy and Me program is a five-week literacy course at several jails on Rikers Island. Implemented in conjunction with the Administration for Children’s Services and financed with New York State Library’s Family Literacy Library Services grant, the Daddy and Me program initiative encourages incarcerated fathers to connect to their children through reading.


After two workshops on the importance of early literacy and storytelling skills, the dads involved record stories for their children and present the finished CDs with the books to their kids, so that their sons and daughters are able to hear their fathers read bedtime stories. The program’s final session is a special reading time in which the children visit their fathers in jail.

Motheread/ Fatheread

Motheread offers a variety of curriculum-based trainings for developing literacy skills with different populations. Since its inception, Motheread has helped incarcerated mothers improve their literacy skills and use books to connect with their children. They currently teach classes using the Motheread/Fatheread curriculum in four North Carolina correctional facilities.


Motheread/Fatheread has designed a curriculum specifically for use with incarcerated men. Fathers Acting to Heal, Educate, and Reconnect uses the power of books and stories to help fathers in prison connect with their children, communicate from a distance, understand children’s reactions to incarceration, and learn about parent and child development. The 10-lesson curriculum includes these topics: Understanding Children’s Reactions to Incarceration, Communicating from a Distance, Understanding Parent and Child Development, and Building Self-Esteem.
