Very early this morning I received a series of photographs from Tina.  She and her dog DJ are responsible for the creation of the Reading Dog program at the elementary school we visit. Yesterday we were given a copy of the book that was made for the children along with the results from the first day we started to the last and there was a great deal of improvement.
When you talk to someone about Reading Dogs, the first thing they say is "your dog reads" (ha ha).  By the time you explain it, they think all schools should give children this opportunity...it really works.


  1. Hmmm ... so if the dogs don't read ... can tehy alteast sound out the words? :-)

  2. That is so sweet.
    I wonder how did you start a program like that.
    I would be interested in doing something like that at my son's elementary school!!
