Welcome to Real Men Read with Kids! The goal is simple – to build a community of readers, one man at a time.  Kids – especially boys – need to see men reading. To develop a love for reading and a belief in reading as a valuable tool for learning, growing, enjoying life, and becoming a capable, empowered adult, kids need role models. And they especially need to see men as reading role models.

Whether you’re a dad, a grandpa, an uncle, a cousin, a teacher, a fireman, a doctor, a carpenter, a sensei, a minister, a biologist, a garbage truck driver or any caring adult man – you can show kids the joy and value of reading.

So here’s your chance! Be a real man. Grab a newspaper, a magazine, a book, a how-to manual, a laptop, an iPad, an iPod, an audiobook – anything you can read from or with – and then read it or listen to it with a kid.

Read with them, read to them, read beside them while they read something else, read while they play. Read silently, read aloud, read along, but mostly just read – be that role model. Be that real man! Five minutes a day can change a kid’s life forever!
