Read to Rover is a great program that gives children the chance to read aloud to a registered therapy dog who loves to listen. This program is specifically for children who are hesitant to read aloud to peers or may not be confident in their reading ability. The kids can read in a calm environment to a dog who is a nonjudgmental and friendly listener.
