Roxie the Dog Encourages Kids to Read Out Loud

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Roxie the dog sure was enjoying her story time at Harte Library today in Flour Bluff. We caught her falling right asleep! The reading session is a part of a therapy program for children ages 5 through 12. The dog's handler says Roxie's involvement encourages kids to read out loud and build up their confidence. How does Roxie seem to like it? The dogs handler Christine Martin said, "she likes it she relaxes quite a bit she likes it real well and the children love her."

Christine says Roxie is pretty popular with the kids as she visits libraries and schools at least twice a week.
