Fatheread teaches inmate fathers to read to their children - Page 2

"I go where I want, I do what I want, and I take what I want," an inmate reads from Coyote Steals the Blanket. Instructor Kathryn Meningall urged him to read with more expression. He growled out the words like a coyote and the teacher smiled her approval as the class laughed.

As prisoners read the book, Meningall encouraged them to adopt a voice for each character and add emphasis that will capture their children’s attention. After they finish, Meningall led a discussion of the book, something she hopes the fathers will do with their children.
