Thank you so much for the excellent article about our READ (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) Program that was published a couple of weeks ago. We had our first successful session at the Almont Library on Feb. 28. The response was very positive. Children got to read for about 20 minutes to my certified therapy dog 'Paddy,' a rough Collie, or to my friend Judy Blum's certified therapy dog 'Logan,' a Shetland sheepdog. All the children expressed an interest in coming back, so our next session is scheduled for Saturday, March 28 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Again, children must pre-register at the library.
Thank you again for your support of the READ program.
