Picture of Dog and Reader

The library is happy to be partnering with Compassionate Canines, Inc. again this school year to provide a wonderful and fun program for kids in grades 1-5 to read to therapy dogs. The idea behind the program is to help readers gain confidence. According to Compassionate Canines, a therapy dog can help "increase a child's motivation to read, help the child maintain his/her focus for a longer period of time, and help the child stay on task despite errors. The presence of a therapy dog helps a child read aloud without pressure or stress. The dog offers quiet social support and invites interaction. And best of all, a therapy dog helps to reduce a child's blood pressure and general level of anxiety. Reading aloud is fun!"
