Children are reading to shelter pets and it’s good for students and animals.
The Human Society of Tampa Bay is helping students with its ongoing program Paws for Literacy, a free program offered to children ages 5 and up.
The Humane Society provides reading stools, books and treats (for the animals), but children are welcome to bring their own books.
