Paws to Read pairs young readers (between the ages of six and 12 years old) with adorable and well-trained therapy dogs, who listen to the kids as they read.
The dogs make an ideal audience—supportive and adorable—and all they ask for in return is the occasional belly rub. The program helps build the child’s confidence and makes reading fun for them.
If your child loves dogs but is shy about reading, then they (and you) will love our Paws to Read.
The program is popular and fills up quickly, so you’ll need to sign up beforehand. You can register your child to participate online or call the Headlands Branch at 440-257-2000.
