Cat lovers, brace yourselves. The Animal Rescue League of Berks County’s is running a beautiful “Book Buddies” program, that has kids grade 1 to 8 come into the shelter to read to the cats, with organizers saying that it serves a dual purpose of soothing the cats and upping the kids’ reading levels. The program reportedly got its start after a staffer had her son practice his reading skills while spending time at the shelter. Staff members took note and like it so much that it became a regular volunteer program. Since the project was launched in August 2013, many children (including home-schooled and autistic) who participated in Book Buddies have shown significant improvements in their reading. The Berks County ARL accepts donations through their site.They are also on FacebookTwitter,YouTube and Pinterest.
