From Go Dog Go to Clifford the Big Red Dog, children's books about dogs have always been a big hit. But what if you added a real dog into the mix? The Henderson Public Libraries are encouraging kids to read aloud to a furry friend who sits beside them. The 12-year program uses therapy dogs to create a friendly environment and inspire kids to read. We visit with the coodinator, a young reader, and a tail-wagging dog to get the ABCs on the "Reading with Rover" program.
