reading to rover

the read to rover program allows young readers to gain confidence
by reading for 15 minutes to a specially trained therapy dog from pets on wheels.
why dogs? cause they don’t criticize or correct.

i’m not a dog person,
but i thought this would be a cool experience.
now radianceGirl is more comfortable around dogs.
she read to a rottweiler named gigi!

reading "the giving tree" to gigi

mercyGirl read to an energetic hound dog named chance
who came to the library ready to party,
however he settled down for story time.

reading "dog day" to chance

the dogs — and their owners — come faithfully to the greenbelt library every third saturday from 2 – 4 p.m.
