Do you have a reluctant reader? Sign your child up to have their own session to practice reading with a therapy dog at the library.
Studies show that children who may not want to read in front of their peers are much less anxious with an animal present. Children don't perceive animals to be judgmental and reading to an animal helps them become more confident readers. We’d like to thank our partners for making this possible: Pet Assisted Therapy teams and their handlers from the Peninsula Humane Society & the SPCA's Paws for Tales program.
Registration is required and space is limited, so register early for your 10-minute slot at smcl.org/pawsfortales.
