Reading With Rover Starts In Bellevue's Crossroads

Reading With Rover, a locally based program that helps children with reading difficulties, has started in the Crossroads community according to Judi Hagen, community services coordinator.  The program is for children 6 and up and takes place on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 6:30 to 7:30 at the Crossroads Community Center at 1600 NE 10th in Bellevue. 
The program allows the children to read to read to a dog.  The dogs are good listeners and are not judgemental as other children may be.  The dogs are trained therapy dogs through various local programs.   My wife, Debra and Dasher are volunteers for the program.  Both love children and are excited about working with the community.  For any questions on the Reading With Rover program, call Judi Hagen at the Crossroads Community Center.
