Kids ages 6 to 12 who could benefit from practicing their reading are invited to participate in Paws to Read Monday evenings and Saturday mornings 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.

Sometimes a vivid character gives a reader courage to try something new. Henri Rousseau never left France; he turned to books to inspire his famous jungle paintings. Reading is the stuff of dreams.
