"Tail Wagging Tutor"

On Thursday August 2 @ 6:30 pm, bring a child to read to Ellen Posson's Laci the Black Lab. What do you get when you bring children, dogs and books together? You get happy, confident children who love to read. Children who might be hesitant, embarrassed or shy about their reading abilities feel at ease around a dog who is just there to listen to the story and not there to judge how he or she reads. Children and dogs bond together over a shared story. The children's confidence and reading skills grow in a relaxing environment.
"Children Reading to Dogs" is a program of Therapy Dogs International. TDI is a volunteer group organized to provide qualified handlers and their Therapy Dogs for visitations in a variety of facilities and settings.
