Help promote literacy with Sit Stay Read

Dogs enable us to tackle the serious issue of childhood literacy in a fun way, and test score results prove that Sit Stay Read improves reading skills for children!

Reading to a dog increases confidence and generates excitement about reading. These trained dogs, assisted by dog-themed books and writing assignments, change a child's reading session from an abstract concept into a real life experience. Children get to read about a dog, see a dog, and touch a dog — an experience that leads to true and lasting learning.

Sit Stay Read's creative approach has shown results: the DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) oral reading frequency assessment test indicates significant improvement in classrooms enriched by Sit Stay Read volunteers, as compared to classrooms without. Programs are provided free of charge to public schools and community facilities serving low-income families in the city of Chicago. Sit Stay Read is looking to expand as resources become available.

You can help.
