Yet another reason to love dogs: childhood literacy edition

Lassie Come Home and Old Yeller have charmed young readers for generations, but these days, dogs are inspiring kids to read in a different way. Libraries across the nation have started bringing in therapy dogs to help kids practice reading aloud without judgment. And it works. In one Minnesota town, 10 out of 14 kids who read aloud to dogs once a week for seven weeks jumped at least one grade level in reading. The programs can also help kids learn English as well. All breeds can serve as a reading dog. Here in Albuquerque, programs run most Saturdays throughout the library system:

• Cherry Hills Library, 857-8321 1st and 3rd Saturdays, 1-3 p.m.

• East Mountain Library, 281-8508 2nd Saturday, 1-3 p.m.
