Listening Therapy Dog at Rosa Parks Elementary

Molly is a Parti Standard Poodle that loves children, cuddles, and helping students become better readers. She is a therapy dog, and some special education students at Rosa Parks Elementary School recently got a chance to practice their literacy skills by reading to the black-and-white canine. The Shadow Project, working with Columbia River Pet Partners, invited Molly to the school to help kids find courage when reading aloud.
