Drake University and their Literacy Department has a one day event at Barnes and Noble Book Store, where you could read books to Therapy Books, Get your books Gift-wrapped, donate money to this awesome cause or just pet the pretty Therapy Dogs.  Did you know how many adults can not read?  It's 1 out of every 5 adults!  This departments volunteers to teach folks how to read and Thor and Marco Polo got to entertain everyone at the book store for 2 hours.  Here's some of our new friends!.

Dawgs & cats! Do you all get along. I live with a big dawg (part huskey) and 2 cats and we're all best friends! Of course the cats are bigger than me, but I'm still the boss!

Cool! You guys are super good huskies. Did you teach anybody how to read? I can read the dog food bag and any treat bags. Also I can read my name on boxes because I always know if there is something good inside. Mom says I can smell it, but I can read!

What a fun outing! It is sad that so many people in this country do not know how to read.
