Paws for Reading

Sat, March 2, 2019 2:00 P.M.
Andorra Library

Today we are hosting Paws for Reading, a program that gives children a chance to read out loud to a well-trained, certified therapy dog in order to improve their reading and communication skills.  Since dogs don't correct mistakes - and they love to hear stories - , the pressure to "perform" is off, and reading becomes a fun, positive, and enjoyable experience.  The unconditional love, and calming, non-judgmental presence of an animal can help a shy reader relax and simply enjoy reading.

This program is intended for 1st through 3rd graders.  Space is limited and you can sign up for a ten-minute turn, starting 10 minutes before the program starts.
