Kids Read To Dogs

September 24, 2013

NEW BREMEN — The first six children gathered for Paws 2 Read Monday at New Bremen Public Library, with even more children on the waiting list for the chance to read to a registered therapy dog.

The idea is that for struggling readers in kindergarten through second grade, reading out loud in front of a class can be a stressful. Reading with a therapy dog, on the other hand, gives students a chance to practice without fear of making mistakes.

“The dogs listen, and don’t tease, laugh or judge,” Branch Supervisor Shelly Parker said.
