Raven's brother, Dalton, 8, said he enjoyed reading to two dogs, a Labradoodle named Joey, owned by Barbara O'Conner, and a Golden Retriever named Lucky, owned by Teddy Steen.
"I love dogs, and I love reading to them. That's why I've got two dogs," Dalton said. "I read to Joey and to Lucky. The fun thing about Joey is (that) he is a big dog, and he listens a lot. The thing about Lucky is that he listens a lot, and there are a lot of pictures in the books that are just like him."
