Rikki the Golden Retriever loves to have kids read to her according to her owner, special education teacher Shelly Schwartz. If your child has a difficult time reading outloud in class or reading in general bring them to the store to read to Rikki. Experience has shown that reluctant readers are more comfortable reading to a dog than to another person. Or if just bring your kids if they would like to read to Rikki! I know we are looking forward to her visit.
