Motheread/Fatheread

Motheread/Fatheread is a program to help parents improve their own reading skills, help their children become better readers and thinkers, and improve family communication. Classes use children’s books and adult literacy pieces as a springboard for discussion and activities. Works great in partnership with young parent groups, and grandparent groups. Can also benefit GED classes. Programs are offered once a week for four or six weeks. Five to ten participants are required for this program.
