Review for Storybook Project Of Arkansas Inc, Cherokee Vlg, AR, USA
Storybook Project of Arkansas provides a vital opportunity for incarcerated parents to bond with their children and build/continue connections to their world outside of prison. This is beneficial for the children and the parents, as a parent who feels bonded to their children has much greater motivation to establish a healthy lifestyle when released and not re-offend. Feeling isolated from their family is a real issue for incarcerated individuals, and the inmates I recorded were very sincerely appreciative of being able to send a "gift" to their child -- and multiple inmates stated that they were actively working to figure out their life so that they could rebuild the relationships with their children and care for them when they get out and that this was the best way they had to establish those bonds.
