ROAR's (Ridgefield Operation Animal Rescue) Therapy Dog Program will be bringing a therapy dog to be read to by children. The use of trained therapy dogs in reading programs can result in children who feel comfortable reading out loud, read more often, attempt more difficult books, and actually look forward to reading. As they improve their literacy skills, they're not just learning how to read, they're learning to love to read! Children must read independently to participate in this program. Registration required. Masks recommended for all participants.
Event Type(s): Animals, Summer Reading
Age Group(s): Children, Grade School (3 - 5), Grade School (K - 2)
