I am pleased to present the result of a new and ongoing project.  As part of a Building Communities in Times of Tension Residency, I completed a project of looking at fathers and fathering as portrayed in Children's Picture Books.  The project was exciting and a lot was learned.  I am looking at ways of sharing this during Father's Day and beyond.  My thanks to many of the great writers and illustrators that provided some great stories for young readers.  My hope and goal is to improve readership with parents and young children tot close the "30 Million Word Gap".
