Minnesauke Elementary School kindergarten students in Beth Diviney’s class practiced their literacy skills when golden retriever Colby visited their classroom.

During the event, the students took turns reading to him from their guided reading books. The initiative aims to provide students – namely young readers – with a safe opportunity to read to a calm and captive audience.

Colby is an 11-year-old golden retriever who visits other elementary schools and hospitals.
