Get help with your child's reading with Words for Whiskers/Read to Rover program at the Elm Grove Public Library.
Does your child need a little extra practice with their reading skills? If so, the Elm Grove Public Library may have just the program to help. The Words for Whiskers/Read to Rover pet therapy reading program is back again this fall and there are still a few spots open. This program is ideal for students in grades 1-5 who would benefit from reading stories to a pet who loves to listen and will not judge the child’s reading ability. Students can sign up for one 25-minute session per month, and can choose to read to either Dexter the cat or Jake the dog. Here are the upcoming dates for Words for Whiskers/Read to Rover:
-Jake the dog: Wednesday, October 23 (5:00, 5:30, and 6:00 pm)
-Dexter the cat: Wednesday, November 6 (4:30, 5:00, and 5:30 pm)
-Jake the dog: Wednesday, November 20 (5:00, 5:30, and 6:00 pm)
Dexter loves hearing new stories
