Children who are learning to read are often hesitant about their reading abilities. Many kids feel more at ease reading to pets, who are simply there to listen — not to judge how well they are reading.
During this time of social isolation, Pet Partners is encouraging families and children to read to their pets. We know many of you are experiencing educational disruptions, and you are working hard to educate your children at home. Reading to pets is an amazing way to get your child excited about reading when they can’t be in school. Take the pledge today to participate in our project!
Take the Pledge!
And our Take The Lead blog post has additional information, plus suggestions for ways anyone (even those who don’t have kids or pets at home) can take part.
We can’t wait to hear from you! Let us know how your family will be participating by completing our pledge form. Our goal is to have thousands of readers and pets all across the country and the world teaming up to read!
And be sure to let people know about We Are All Ears:
