CBC Brings Children’s Books to Incarcerated Mothers
The Children’s Book Council (CBC) has joined forces with The unPrison Project, a nonprofit working toward the mentorship of incarcerated women, to make children’s literature available to mothers in prison, reports GalleyCat.
Thus far, CBC-connected publishers have provided 45 handpicked titles. The books target ages of zero to 18 months, and pertain to building mother and child relationships.
The organizations plan to build libraries for the incarcerated mothers so they have available reading material for babies in the prison nursery. So far, the project is set to enable 10 states: California, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Nebraska, New York, South Dakota, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
I’m just glad to hear people still read to their kids! What does everyone in the ‘Verse think about this project?
