I’ve always been a huge bookworm.
When my mom would tell me to go outside and play, I usually just plopped down on the grass and opened my favorite stories. My brother, however, wasn’t that interested in reading, so my parents worried that he wouldn’t get enough practice. If only he’d had a dog to help him out!
Oli Cassini’s parents were also worried about his lack of interest in reading, so they took him to their local library. There they met a furry friend, also named Ollie, who was more than willing to listen.
