The R.E.A.D. program targets children up to grade five who are struggling or reluctant readers. Reading to a dog allows for a relaxed, non-threatening environment and is shown to boost confidence and self-esteem. The R.E.A.D. dogs are here the second Sunday of every month at 2:00 p.m. Each child reads to the dog for fifteen minutes.
