Messages of love: Incarcerated dads record audiobooks for their children at High Desert SP

The soothing sound of a parent’s voice is a source of comfort for children throughout the world, and one organization is helping children whose parents are in prison continue to find that comfort. Now in its fifth year, the Father2Child Literacy Project works with fathers in California prisons to record books on CDs for their children to listen to. The CDs and accompanying books are sent to the children, along with a message from the father. The goal of the program is to support family connectedness, comfort children, and enable fathers to be active in encouraging their children to read.
