Reading goes to the dogs

The Strib writes about reading to dogs in the Ramsey county library system:
Libraries pair furry friends with phonics: "The Ramsey County library system introduced the Paws to Read program last summer, when therapy dog owners approached library administrators about volunteering. So far, the library system has hosted programs in Roseville, Shoreview, Maplewood and now Mounds View."
Saint Paul's been running the same program for at least six months. We've been regulars at two libraries. I can't say that it makes a great difference for our children, but they do like it.
