Paws to Read helps young readers
Kids ages 6 and older who could benefit from practicing their reading are invited to participate in Paws to Read at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
Paws to Read pairs young readers with certified therapy dogs in a relaxed setting. Studies have shown that reading aloud to dogs helps put children at ease. Kids benefit from the dogs’ patience, acceptance and comforting presence while they practice reading and build skills.
Paws to Read will be offered on Monday, March 11, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, March 16, 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Registration is not required; just drop in.
The therapy dogs will be accompanied by their certified handlers and are from the group Healing Paws, Inc.
