My name is Dr. Terry Husband and I am an Associate Professor of Early Childhood and Elementary Literacy at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois. I am also a father of three beautiful daughters and passionate about reading. Research suggests that fathers play a very critical role in a child's literacy development. At the same time, many fathers are unsure how they might best support their child's literacy development outside of school. This blog is designed to encourage and support fathers as they read to and with their children on a regular basis outside of school. As you browse this blog, you will find articles, tools, and links to assist you in this journey. I hope you enjoy!
