A nonprofit called People Animals Love has a free after-school program where kids read out loud to therapy dogs in 30 libraries in the Washington, D.C., area. But after the coronavirus pandemic closed public spaces, PAL began offering the reading sessions virtually over the video conferencing platform Zoom. As we hear from VOA’s Deborah Block, the kids get to enjoy the dogs while improving their reading at the same time.
