I would like to commend Red Rover for their educational efforts! I am a teacher and an author of children's book, "Rescue Pup," and in my search for others who have a passion for literacy and animals, I found Red Rover Readers. They understand the importance of READING and developing CRITICAL THINKING skills at an early age, but that's not all. They use the most important topics that children will connect with and understand...ANIMALS! Today in education there is an enormous push toward improving literacy skills. The best way to do this is by reading about real world events and issues that impact all of us. What can bring children in touch with the real world? Animals and their issues today. The children's books that Red Rover uses in their curriculum and on their recommended book list offers opportunity for children to connect with the real world, animals around us, and the environment. These are interesting topics to children. They begin to ask questions, make inferences, form opinions, and learn to problem solve. They are engaging in critical thinking when Red Rover appears! These thinking skills are so important as we teach our children to read and comprehend, and Red Rover gets two paws up for getting the job done! Most importantly they not only are helping children learn to read and think critically, they are helping one the most important causes in the world... animals. They are making a better world for pets as children and families read and learn about kindness and empathy toward animals. They are a voice for the voiceless. Awareness is everything and it helps one homeless, neglected, or abused animal at a time. Red Rover, I am so very much on board with you! You are an organization that truly makes a difference in this world! My sincere regards! Brenda Fiorini, teacher and author - Illinois
