Storytime project

 

Overview

The Storytime project enables parents in custody to strengthen their bond with their children, and take a role in their child's education while possibly improving their own literacy levels.

The inmate parent reads a children's story as it's recorded onto a CD or Hallmark recordable book. The book and/or CD are forwarded onto the child so that they can read the book while listening to their parent's voice reading the story.

As part of the project, SHINE for Kids also sends out a children's activity pack with a stamp-addressed envelope for the child to write or draw a message to their parent in custody.
