That's really true about the benefits of kids reading to dogs. They get much more comfortable with their skills.

If dogs can read, then pigs can fly. Can't we just let sleeping dogs lie?

I think the answer here depends on our definition of "read," and by the way I define "read," the answer is a resounding NO.

I'd rather read to my dog than have him read to me.

I hadn't heard about the dog-reading therapy before, and I think it's a fabulous idea. Not only does it improve literacy skills in children, but it also teaches about compassion and closeness to animals, I think
