This Program Wants Kids To Read To Their Dogs

Take the pledge to read at home to your pets.

With kids across the country now being educated at home, Pet Partners introduced a new program designed to bring the power of the human-animal bond to at-home learning. We Are All Ears is a worldwide read-with-pet project that will run through the end of the year.

Just take the pledge to read at home to your pets, then determine the reading goal that’s right for you — whether it’s a certain number of books, pages, chapters or minutes. And Pet Partners has put together some great resources to support participating families: a reading log, bookmark templates and a special BINGO card, all to help encourage regular reading, plus a certificate of completion and an official T-shirt.
