Children ages 5-10 are invited to practice their reading skills by reading aloud to a certified therapy dog or Seeing Eye Puppy-in-Training.
Each child will be allowed a full 10 minutes of one-on-one reading time. The dogs provide an uncritical ear while the children gain self-esteem, confidence, public speaking skills and a love of reading. The dogs never interrupt or criticize!
Each child signs up for a specific time slot: 6:00, 6:15, 6:30 or 6:45 p.m. Registration begins April 20 and is in person or over the phone by calling the Dennis Branch at 973 383-4810. Please arrive on time with a couple of books or early enough to pick out some library books.
