Review for Sit Stay Read Inc, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Sit Stay Read in Chicago makes reading, learning fun by bringing dogs and human book buddies into 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade classrooms. The kids love the dogs and even kids who don't participate in reading and writing at first almost always open up with a little "help" from a dog. Sit Stay Read is an innovative, stimulating, effective way to boost learning in children in lower-income areas. I've done other tutoring programs and really enjoy and feel like I'm accomplishing something with this program. Everyone gets excited when Sit Stay Read comes to school.

Review for Sit Stay Read Inc, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The kids are always so excited when Sit Stay Read comes to their classrooms with dogs. Some who don't join in reading when with a Book Buddy like me open up and start reading when they visit the dogs. I can see the positive effects every time I take part. Sit Stay Read is innovative, rewarding, stimulating, fun.
