Improve your reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to a therapy dog! The PAWS to Read program improves children's reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog. But not just any dog. PAWS to Read dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children.
*Allergy Alert! The dogs are live animals.*
