Read to a Dog

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Nanini Library

Description

Hey kids! Read to a therapy dog and have fun while improving your reading skills!

Granite will be at Nanini Library listening to stories today.

Read to a Dog is designed to allow kids the chance to read to a non-judgmental listener, one who will accept the story exactly as they read it. For many children, this allows them a rare chance to experience stress free reading; they're able to relax and having fun while reading!

All of these elements work together to increase a child's motivation to read, which is an essential element in becoming a successful reader.

How does Read to a Dog work?

Kids come to library during Read to a Dog and select a book to read to a furry friend. All of the dogs and handlers who participate have been certified as therapy dogs by an accredited organization.
