During a lesson on our discussion board someone posted this link to share.  Welcome to Reading with Rover is a program for children who are shy about reading out loud.  This allows them to read to a dog instead of a person.

In the “Rover” program, children with reading difficulties actually read stories to a dog and the dog loves listening! A child who may be hesitant to read aloud to his peers is typically less stressed when reading to a dog and the dog never judges the child’s reading ability.
