Reading with Rover: Dogs Help Kids Learn to Read

Read aloud to a loving canine listener. The Reading with Rover program helps kids strengthen reading skills and improve reading confidence. For school-age children with a caregiver. Free.  

Join us on the second Saturday of each month at the Oak Harbor Library. Reading to a dog helps children in many ways. Dogs help create a safe, nonjudgmental reading experience which, studies show, reduces anxiety, anger and depression. At the same time, increased self-confidence and self-esteem create a sense of pride and motivation for reading independently. Kids love reading to the dogs. Reading with Rover™ is a therapy dog program serving the community of the Puget Sound. Reading with Rover is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
