Kids Read To Cats In Adorable “Book Buddies” Animal Shelter Program
The Animal Rescue League in Berks County, Pennsylvania has come up with a touching program called “Book Buddies” in which children volunteer to pair up with shelter cats and read to them.
“Children in grades 1-8 who are able to read at any level may come into the shelter to read to the cats in our adoption room. The program will help children improve their reading skills while also helping the shelter animals. Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing,” the shelter explains. It looks like the program is an adorable and heart-warming win-win.
