Children Reading to Dogs
Time: 6:30pm-7:30pm
Location: Del City

All ages

Reluctant readers, emergent readers, and readers who just need more practice can sharpen their reading skills by reading to a Certified Therapy Dog and their owner. Reading to a dog is a great way to practice reading aloud; the dogs and their owners are an uncritical audience. Studies show that kids gain confidence and their reading scores improve when they practice reading aloud to dogs. Kids can bring their own book or choose one from our shelves. For more information please call 672-1377 or visit us at the information desk. Don't forget to read to your pet at home too!
