Branch: Accident Accident LibraryThis month we will have Trixie here with us
for StoryTails: Children Reading to Dogs. This program is designed to
help children develop confidence in reading. Each child reads to a dog
for 15-20 minutes with the dog's handler sitting nearby to give reading
assistance if necessary. All dogs are certified by Therapy Dogs
International. At the end of each reading session, each child will
receive a bookmark with a picture of the dog that they read to. This
program provides a great opportunity for kids who need to work on
reading skills and would like the opportunity to read to an animal.
