Read to Amos – January Dates

Children of all ages are invited to Read to Amos the greyhound.  Amos and his handler Ms. Holly  are a certified team for Therapy Dogs International.  They are also part of a Children Reading to Dogs program called “Tail-Waggin’ Tutors”. Amos, a 7-year-old greyhound, is a good listener, and children can make a five-minute appointment to read to him.  The dates and times for January are:

  • Saturday, January 20, 12:30-1:00 PM, all ages. 6 children maximum.
  • Saturday, January 27, 2:30-1:00 PM, all ages. 6 children maximum.

Registration can be done through the Plumb Library’s Event Calendar and is required for this program.  Space is limited. Once you attend, you are officially a member of the Amos Book Club.

 

Reading aloud to a dog is a great way for a child to become a more confident reader. Dogs are non-judgmental, and don’t care if the child makes a mistake in reading.
