This isn't the first time I've read of programs like these, and I just love the idea! What a great way for kids not only to practice reading, but to associate reading with good things, with fun and comfort, not stress and worry.
And yes, that is a picture of my dog. She likes to hang out nearby when the kids and I read to each other - and she never points out if any of us makes a mistake!
And if you or anyone you know would like to try reading to a receptive dog listener, may I recommend this book:
It's called Three Stories You Can Read to Your Dog by Sarah Swan Miller. Any dog would be thrilled to hear one of the stories from this book!
