Paws to Read helps young readers

Kids ages 6 to 12 who could benefit from practicing their reading are invited to participate in the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Paws to Read program. Kids read aloud to certified therapy dogs in a relaxed setting. Studies have shown that reading aloud to dogs helps put the child at ease. Kids benefit from the dogs’ patience, acceptance and comforting presence while they practice reading and build skills. The therapy dogs will be accompanied by their certified handlers and are from the group Healing Paws, Inc.
