Genisio, Margaret Humadi
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v40 n2 p92-100 Oct 1996
Describes a program for children and incarcerated fathers called "Breaking Barriers with Books," which seeks to promote closer father-child bonds through booksharing. Shows how journal writing provided a unique outlet for personal expression by fathers, and discusses the program's three parts: the instructional component, the parent-child visitation, and the parent support group led by fathers.
