Read to Roo is a local subgroup of the Reading Education Assistance Dogs program, or R.E.A.D.
With Read to Roo, my handler and I go to the local elementary school and work as literacy mentors
for children. What does that mean exactly? Well, what it means is that we work with the children,
teachers and administrators to help encourage literacy skills, improve self confidence and offer
a friendly hand (or paw as the case may be) to those who might benefit from our program.
