PAWS for Reading

1:30 – 2:30pm
Centennial Train Room, Ground Floor

Children can read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) to improve reading and communication skills. Sessions are one-on-one with trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in a setting where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble.

Bring a familiar favorite book from home, or choose one from our library!
