FRED: Fathers Read Every Day

I am learning more about FRED (Fathers Read Every Day) via Hunting English:

The program originates from Texas A&M University and it has spread across the US and over the pond. It is a great local initiative, not only to get fathers reading with their children – one of the most important singular gifts we can bestow upon our children – but to also connect parents, and especially fathers, with the schooling and he education of their children.

How do you get started?

It is incredibly simple. You get supported with reading materials and you are provided with a variety of ways that you can make reading time enriching and engaging. Then you read for two weeks for at least fifteen minutes a day, following by at least half an hour a day for the following two weeks. The end of the program is celebrated by all involved.
