It’s probably no surprise that the CLiF Staff loves to read. After all, our mission is to share our love of reading and writing with low-income, at-risk, and rural kids in Vermont and New Hampshire. So of course, we read a lot. We read with our kids; we read by ourselves; and sometimes, we read with our pets, too.
While we’ve been enjoying some relaxing at home with books during the holidays, our furry (and fishy) friends cuddled up for some quality reading time.
Zoe reads “How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas?” to Meredith, Fern, and Mr. Swimester
Jesse and Yoshi read “Eyes on Nature: Weird Creatures” (Yoshi is a little taken aback by some of those weird creatures….)
Jana and her feline friend cuddle up with the holiday classic “The Night Before Christmas“
Erika, Delphi and Nala reading “My Pet Human“
Stephanie and Tess reading “Mystery at the Museum” with Benny
If you love the idea of reading with animals, CLiF has a new Community Building grant opportunity, which includes starting a program for Reading with Shelter Animals. It encourages young readers to read aloud, while socializing anxious shelter animals. Win-win!
Happy reading from the CLiF staff and all of our book-loving animal friends!
