NYPL TV: Daddy & Me: Clifford y La Hora del Bano
Correctional Services offered a program at Rikers Island called "Daddy & Me" in the fall of 2010. The program was designed to encourage early literacy efforts for incarcerated fathers. After two workshops on the importance of early literacy and storytelling skills, the dads involved began to record stories for their children. There were eight men in the program, most of them with more than one young child. We recorded them reading their children's favorite books and this morning they presented the finished CDs with the books to their kids. Here is one of the recordings of a father reading Clifford y La Hora del Bano to his child in both English and Spanish.
