Review for Storybook Project Of Arkansas Inc, Cherokee Vlg, AR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I can’t say enough about how rewarding it is to be a part of the Storybook Project. Fathers, mothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and yesterday, a sibling, being recorded reading to the children they are separated from. There is enormous power in a child being read to, especially by a loved one, a gift that can last a lifetime. There is also a wonderful gift to the reader, who in a prison environment, has few opportunities to connect meaningfully to the children they are absent from. Readers are often very emotional and are so very grateful for this opportunity. It is an extremely rewarding volunteer experience.
