Sign up to read to a West Michigan Therapy dog. Children are encouraged to come every week at the same time for four weeks this March. They will get more practice reading and get to know the dog and trainer better. Registration is required. Sessions begin next week. Spots are still open at Main Library and Yankee Clipper Branch. Reading to a Therapy dog is fun! I’ve seen big smiles on kids before and after they read to a therapy dog. West Michigan Therapy Dogs and their handlers provide an encouraging and non-judgmental environment for children to develop confidence in reading. The program is for independent readers of any age and is recommended for children who need to develop confidence in reading aloud or for English as a second language learners.
