Reading Education Assistance Dogs
Reading is a wonderful opportunity for a child to build his or her imagination and begin to build skills for his or her future. Libraries are a wonderful resource, and Therapy Dogs can be a great way to help children discover how much fun their local library can be. This program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and a furry friend to read to that will lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. Over time your child's reading ability and confidence can improve, which will make them enjoy reading even more. Registration is required. Please sign up in YS program room. Reading will be on Tuesday, October 21 @ 4 - 6 pm.
