Supporting emerging readers in prison

‘Breaking the Chain’ is a story for prisoners and a free tool for anyone working in prisons with emerging readers. Part of a Prison Fiction Programme, this book is low literacy, designed to be easy to read. It tells the story of a young prisoner, Josh, and the rehabilitative journey of an older prisoner, Ken, who becomes his mentor. Each chapter ends with questions for the reader to consider: whether alone in their cell, with a mentor or in a reading group.
