Come read with the friendly, specially-trained dogs from Acme Canine. For those kids who could not come to our Reading Dogs last August, NOW is your chance! The dogs will be paired with children ages 6 to 12 to share a story and practice reading skills. Please call us at 740-363-2337 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot for this program. Reservations are requested, but walk-ins are welcomed.
The dog-friendly program will feature Woofie, other canine pals along with their owners. The pets and owners have been trained by Acme Canine of Lewis Center, which is presenting the program.
Laura Pakis, owner of Acme Canine, said, "We've held reading sessions at a number of libraries in Columbus, and it's been a huge hit. Children love spending time with attentive, furry friends who won't judge them if they stumble over a word or don't understand a passage. Reading improves as the child relaxes, and the adults are there to help with pronunciation and comprehension.
