Reading to the Dogs
Our library, in conjunction with the Humane Society, offers a wonderful program called "Reading to the Dogs". Once a month therapy dogs along with their human counterparts come to the library so children can read to them.
Grace was hopeful to read her "Biscuit" story to a "little baby pug" but when there was no pug to be seen she happily read to Sugarbear, a golden retriever. While Grace was reading Sugarbear kept placing her paw on Grace's arm - I think the dog would have preferred a neck scratch over listening to the story! Thankfully, Grace didn't seem to mind and is already asking, "When will the dogs come back to the library"?
