Ok, FRED isn’t anyone you know, so apologies for the misleading title of the post, but you might not have heard about FRED and you should. Then you should tell a friend about it. FRED is a brilliant reading program to encourage fathers to read more with their children. It stands for Fathers Read Every Day. It is a simple, but brilliantly effective little reading program. I am enjoying currently the pleasure of the final week of this four week reading program with my young daughter, Freya, who has recently started Primary school.
