Reading Aloud to a Dog

Mom and Dad, this is a don't-miss experience for both you and your child, aged 7-11 years old.  Every fall we offer readers a 15-minute opportunity to read aloud their favorite story to a dog.  The program is called Paws to Read, and you may register now for  times in October.  On 11/1 register for a November time.  Believe me, watching your child un-self-consciously read aloud to a relaxed dog is right up there with other great moments of parenting.  Of course, you will stand outside the Lindsey Room while the kids are inside reading; but you can peek through the windows.  Then after the final reading session, you are invited to take a picture of your child and the dog.  Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy, Inc. understands that kids have to practice to become good readers. Dogs don't criticize and correct; dogs just love and listen.  They are specially trained and so a child is relaxed, unafraid to make mistakes, and just plain happy to be reading.
