Too Cute

It’s too cute, I can’t handle it: the Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Pennsylvania, invites children in from first through eighth grade to visit the shelter and read to the rescue cats who live there. The kids get to practice their reading skills, while the cats feel a sense of comfort from the rhythmic sound of a human voice. The program was started by an employee of the rescue league whose 10-year-old son was struggling to read. Once she saw easily he read surrounded by kitties in the shelter adoption room, she implemented the program with other classes. These days, everyone from homeschooled kids to parents of autistic children to Girl Scout troops participate. Everybody wins, and as the series on snapshots (like the one above) on Love Meow shows, nothing makes for a cuter set of pictures. How many little ones do you think go home begging Mom to adopt a stray? [22 WordsLove Meow]
