Helping dogs to help children develop a passion for reading
Did you know dogs love books too?
Reading to dogs helps children develop their reading skills, encourages positive behaviour and helps build confidence and self-esteem. Reading to dogs inspires children to have fun and enjoy the experience of reading.
All over the country, children are learning to love reading with the support of these amazing doggy companions.
