R. E. A. D. (Wed. 25 Feb, 2015 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm)
The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to an animal. But not just any animal. R.E.A.D. companions are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owners/handlers as a team, visiting schools, libraries, and many other settings as reading companions for children. If your child would like the experience of reading to a friendly animal companion, sign up for a reading time and date at the Children's Desk or call 801-229-7161 to schedule an appointment.
