Children Reading to Dogs
Time: 6:30pm-7:30pm
Location: Southern Oaks

For kids who can read

A Dog in the Library? That's right, come read to a lovable dog and their owner! By sitting down next to a dog and reading to the dog, all threats of being judged are put aside. Kids will improve literacy skills in a relaxed environment that allows them to focus on reading. Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem, and associating reading with something pleasant. All of our dog teams are trained through HALO or Therapy Dogs International. Preregistration is required. Please call 631-4468 to sign up.
