Calendar Date:Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 3:30pm
Children sign up for 20-minute sessions to read to a dog. Each child chooses a book and how much reading and petting to do. Reading to the dogs increases enthusiasm for reading, develops reading skills, teaches children how to interact with pets, and promotes confidence. Our dog handler encourages interaction with her dog and will offer help if needed. All dog and handler teams are certified volunteers from the Delta Society Animal Assisted Therapy & Education Program. Reservations required. Please call 503-656-7853, x4.
