Furry Friends Are Reading Helpers


Our Mission: To inspire children to discover the joy of reading while developing literacy skills and confidence in a safe environment using Reading With Rover Dogs.

       It’s time to spread the “WOOF” about some exciting Reading with Rover news! If you live in the Seattle, Washington area, I hope you will take the time to watch Evening Magazine tonite at 7pm. King 5  Evening Magazine  news correspondent Kim Holcomb recently filmed Becky Bishop, Woodmoor teacher Betsy Leahy, Diana Trupiano with Frodo,and some other Reading with Rover dogs in action. Viewers will be able to see what a great program this is and how they can become involved!

Our own  students know what a great program this is and how much it has helped them with their reading. Jett, Silas and Reese are our local Rover rockstars and know first-hand how much fun it is to read with the kids! I hope you will tune in and give King 5 a big “WOOF”! Are you a blogger from out of the Seattle area?  You will be able to view the interview after the show airs on the website. http://www.king5.com/on-tv/evening-magazine/Reading-with-Rover-116769389.html You can also find more information about the Reading with Rover program and how it works on their website: http://www.readingwithrover.orgP8040236

  1. Dear Kids,
    My name is Reese and I want you to know how much I love listening to you read to me! I especially like it when you read the Biscuit books to me. Biscuit makes us both laugh and then reading is even more fun!
    What book are you going to read to me next? You can find me at Borders on March 1st.

  2. Dear Mrs.Hembree,
