This program provides an opportunity for children to improve their literary skills by reading to a non-judgmental pet volunteer in local libraries and schools. This program allows children to practice reading aloud without the fear of being criticized or corrected, and their anticipation of the quality that is spent with their pet volunteer makes their practice an event that they look forward to.
