Join Amos' BookClub!  Bring in a short book from home, or select one from the library.  Each child will be meet Amos and Holly, his handler, and read them their selected book!  This is NOT a group reading event. Children  read only to Amos and Holly.  Registration is required.  Only 6 spots available per sessions.

**All ages welcome-pre-readers can read with grown-up. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:   Amos and Holly are certified by Therapy Dogs International and are part of a program called "Tail Waggin' Tutors".  Amos is a 7-year-old greyhound, retired from a Florida race track, and weighs 68 lbs. He has the sweetest, most gentle soul, and is fantastic with children of all ages. He is a great listener, but  sometimes he does fall asleep!  Research has shown that reading to dogs not only improves a child’s self-esteem and self-confidence, but their reading scores as well!  This is because: 

• Dogs are non-judgmental and will not criticize or ridicule. Quite simply, the dog does not care if the child makes a mistake.

• The child can read aloud in a more private setting, thus eliminating anxiety associated with reeading aloud in front of peers. 

• For a child who is lacking in confidence or is a reluctant reader, reading to a dog can directly impact self-esteem in a very positive way!

2017 Summer Reading Program: Build a Better World
Hula Hooping for a Better World

This year, the one hour Pinto Bella Hoops program will add a constructive twist as we work together to build a better world through team work and repurposing house hold materials to make hula hoops.

The program will begin with a new book, written by Katie ‘Pinto’ LeBrun herself, that explains the process of making a hula hoop through the eyes of a young chicken. Pinto will then introduce the audience to the different kinds of hula hoops and how each one benefits our bodies and our minds. After a demonstration and a short performance, everyone gets a turn to try their moves on the hula hoop, and we will play some creative and team building games.

To end the program, we will work together to decorate a hula hoop with upcycled materials such as tapes, cloth, ribbons, and stickers (the decorated hula hoop is then given to the library to be used in a summer drawing or kept in the library for patrons to use year round). Programs held indoors will also feature a final performance, turning off the lights, and using a light up hula hoop.

Either lasts one hour, though Pinto Bella sticks around for another 20-30 minutes to answer questions about hooping, where to take classes, and how to get your own hoop.
