The usual children’s reading programs are a little bit different during these days of a pandemic. Practice reading sessions for kids have gone virtual. In Washington, DC, volunteers used to take therapy dogs into local libraries for kids to read to. But since kids can’t go to the library, they’re reading their books to the dogs on-line. Dogs make a great audience for new readers, with the help of a volunteer, they patiently listen and the kids get much needed practice reading out loud. Parents seem to like the virtual sessions too. The meeting times give moms and dads a break, and the comfort of knowing their kids are involved in a worthwhile activity.
