Kids read to cats and take cuteness to the max. Berks County Animal Rescue League created a “Book Buddies” program where kids read to cats. Most masculine cat man ever, Ernest Hemingway, found cats have a great appreciation for literary talent and he often read to polydactyly cats at his Florida estate.
When kids participate in this “Book Buddies” program, they feel more comfortable reading aloud in class and their reading scores improve. As a famous polydactyl cat named @CatFoodBreath has said, “Everything is better with cats.”
Students can begin participating in the program in first grade and continue through eighth grade. Kittens to senior cats love to hear good stories.
