R.E.A.D with DaniMonday October 29, 2018
5:00 PM until 6:45 PM
Children in grades K - 3 may register to read to Dani, a certified therapy dog, for a 15-minute session! This program provides an opportunity for beginning and/or struggling readers to practice reading aloud to improve their reading skills. Animals are ideal reading companions because they listen attentively; do not judge, laugh or criticize; allow children to proceed at their own pace; are less intimidating than peers.
Dani and her handler have been trained in the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) program, which improves children's reading and communication skills.
Each child may bring their own book or choose one at the library before their session.
*Registration is required for a specific timeslot and will begin one month before the program. If the timeslot you would like is unavailable, please call the library to put your name on a waitlist*
*If your child's grade falls outside of the parameters for this program and there are special circumstances which would make this program beneficial to your child, please call the Children's Services Librarian at 203-452-2850 x 2930.*
Location: Children's Story Room
