PAWS AND PAGES
3rd Monday of the Month. Pre-register.
Independent readers may register to read for 20 minutes to a specially trained Reading Education Assistance Dog. Click here to scroll through the list of events at Monona Library to find the monthly Read to a Dog program.
Improve reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to a therapy animal. The dogs and handlers are from the Dogs on Call, Read With Me program. With the dog as an attentive audience (and an occasional gentle assist from the dog’s adult volunteer partner), children are actually teaching themselves to read out loud and readers are getting valuable practice. For the child, the reading is about the dog. No pressure. No embarrassment. No humiliation.
