BUSTER VISITS SCHOOL FOR LESSONS
Buster is part Labrador Retriever but, rather than hunting in
the woods and fields, he goes to work at an elementary school in Pennsylvania. There
he is part of a teacher's "pet project" -- having kids read to canine visitors.
Kids love it, and it does seem to
stimulate their interest in reading when they can tell a story outloud to a visitor like
Buster rather than to their teacher. Click to find out why!
