FRED--Fathers Reading Every Day

FRED Intro graphic 

FRED is a four-week program designed to enhance the level of involvement of fathers and father figures by reading to and with their children each night. Reading together is such an excellent way for fathers to bond with their children. We think you will agree after you have worked with the program.
