Practice reading aloud and build your confidence during a one-on-one reading session with a certified therapy dog.
We have a limited number of available time slots. Readers can sign up for a time slot up to one hour before the program at the Information Desk. Each reader will have ten minutes to read one-on-one with Emmy Lou or Easton, our certified therapy dogs!
This program is specifically targeted to children 5 years old and up who have some ability to read aloud on their own.
