Read to a Dog

Starting June 1, children ages 5 to 12 can sign up for a twenty minute session where they will read aloud to a gentle dog provided by the Alliance of Therapy Dogs, a nonprofit all-volunteer organization.

Read to a Dog will be held on June 15, June 22, and June 29 from 3pm to 4pm in THP South Branch's Community Meeting Room.

Read to a Dog is a great way for children to practice oral fluency, spend time with a friendly dog, and have fun. The goal is to help build a child’s self-esteem and confidence, as well as foster a fondness for reading.
