Reading To Dogs Helps

There's a well known teacher's pet at Poplar Grove Elementary and he's not your typical student.

Kylik, a Red Siberian Huskie is doing more than looking cute. He's helping third and fourth graders become better readers.

The program, called "reading dog," lets students practice reading aloud without worrying about criticism from a teacher or their peers.

Kylik visits the student's classrooms once a week to make sure they're keeping up on their assignments.
