Reading to Rover
Librarians say studies show that children often feel less self-concious when reading to animals than to people.
"Kids work with the dogs on a one on one basis," said childrens librarian Chris Jones. "There's also a handeler that comes in. The kids read to the dogs, and if they need it the handerlers do help them, or prompt them with their words."
The program happens the second Monday of every month.There were about 5 dogs Monday and about 17 children got a turn to read.
