Kids Get a Head Start By Reading To Dogs!

In Orchards, Washington, a program called “Read To Rover” is helping young children improve their reading skills by harnessing the attention of a captive audience – dogs! Volunteer tutors and their canine companions come and lend a hand to students who could use a bit of extra help. The kids are mostly first and second graders and they love the idea of having a non-judgmental, furry face to listen to them.
