KW Humane Society volunteers and their trained pets want to help improve literacy skills. Children can read one-on-one to a companion animal for 15 minutes at a time in a quiet room. Open to all children, this program is especially good for those who lack confidence in reading, because animals are non-judgmental! Parents are welcome to stay with children as they read with the animal and its owner.
No advanced registration required. Sign up at the children's information desk for a 15-minute block (starting at 6:15 pm). First come, first served.source: kplca.evanced.info
