In 2014/2015 the Reading Coalition activates fathers to read to their children with the campaign Fathers for Reading in The Netherlands. Part of the campaign is the reading service, which provides companies a bookcase filled with children’s books and monthly a specially written digital story. Fathers working in the company can lend the books and take them home to read with their children thereby stimulating the reading skills as well as the joy and pleasure in reading among their children and themselves alike. The reading service can be complemented by reading workshops, reading guest appearance or extra material. Also extra campaigns, games and activities are organized to motivate the fathers and companies.
Read Coalition consists of Reading Foundation (Chairman), the Foundation for Collective Promotion for the Dutch Book, Reading and Writing Foundation and National Library of The Netherlands.
The website is available in Dutch.
