Three years ago, Jordan Piper thought “reading was the hardest thing in the world.”
Today, his mom cannot get Jordan to put books down. He even reads while brushing his teeth, running errands with his family and with a flashlight under his sheets after bedtime.
So what flipped the switch for this young boy? A dog named Drew.
Thanks to a Better World Books grant to Intermountain Therapy Dogs R.E.A.D program, their local chapter of READing Paws was able to teach Jordan to read.
If it were not for you donating books to and buying books from Better World Books, Jordan and Drew may have never met and Jordan may be falling behind in elementary school. Thanks to you, however, Jordan and Drew are best friends and flourishing readers together! There are many more children out there - in the U.S and all over the world - who can benefit from reading with therapy dogs and every time you chose to shop with us, we can help more of them.
In loving memory of Drew: November 14th, 2001 - February 6th, 2012
