Our literacy project, Reading to Rover, has been tremendously successful.

Reading to Rover was designed for childen
who struggle with reading aloud in a group.
The dogs offer a calm,
accepting presence for the children
to practice their reading aloud skills.

Reading To Rover has been a wonderful opportunity to share
the unconditional love of the dogs
with children who have reading problems
or who may not have a pet of their own.

It takes an especially calm and quiet pet to work with these children.
