Canine Assisted Reading

How cute is this? Shy kids getting help with their reading from dogs. No, the dogs don't read, the kids do... to the dogs. The dogs don't make fun of the children when they make a mistake. The kids are motivated to practice their reading. Certainly the dogs don't mind listening. It seems to be working and both the kids and the dogs like it.

Want to know more? It's on the NBC-6 website, in an article called "Dogs Help Shy Kids Learn To Read." There are pictures and a video link.
