  1. Reading to dogs (or cats, or rabbits, etc.) is a great way for children to get some practice without feeling they will be criticized for mistakes or judged in any way.

    We leave the leaves, the few we get from the neighbors trees (all we ever had were pines and they got that awful infection that went around several years ago and died and had to be taken down, and i miss them).

    1. Ms. Mimi, I’m ever so sorry to hear that you lost your trees. Have you thought of planting new ones, or is that impossible?

  2. awww this photo of the children reading to the dogs is priceless! And you make such a good point about NOT bagging up the leaves- better yet just rake them off your lawn, deck etc and let them just break down along pathways ,, in your flower beds- or in your compost pile. Beyond our backyard is a protected greenspace and it is wonderous to see all the leaves from the numerous maple, filbert, alder and deciduous shrubs falling and creating a wonderous natural carpet! Have a great day!

    1. Our leaves go into our compost heap… it is a very interesting place for us cats to keep an eye on. We also make sure to have ‘pollinator plants’ in our garden so those wonderful butterflies and other great things come to visit.
      As per those children reading to the ‘inmates’, until I found that photo, I thought we were the only family that did that. Years ago, Master Munchkin had trouble reading out loud and was too shy to purractice to the humans SO we had him read aloud to the inmates on Saturday (our day to help out at our local shelter)… that’s where he met Katsu and they developed a deep furiendship over about a half year, so when MM was asked what he wanted for his birthday, there was only one thing: Katsu. They still love to read together.
