Read 2 a Dog

July 1 @ 6:00 PM

Prepare for a tail wagging reading extravaganza as therapy pups Rein and Remy help us paw our way to becoming stronger, more confidant readers. It's not ruff all you have to do is sign up for one of the 15 minute sessions, grab a book, cuddle up and read! Reading to Rein and Remy can help your child gain more confidence in their reading ability and change reading from being a chore to a delight!
