I know I’ve written about our Paws to Read program, but I’m not missing any opportunities to share photos of kids reading to dogs.
Paws to Read pairs young readers (between the ages of six and 12 years old) with therapy dogs, who listen to the children as they read.
If your child can read independently but doesn’t like to do it in front of other people, you might try signing them up for Paws to Read. The program works well for dog lovers, but it’s also helped some kids who are scared of dogs get over their phobia.
Paws to Read is going to take a brief break during the holiday season, but it will return in January.
