This summer's library reading theme is Paws To Read. The program is set up through iRead program in an effort to encourage children to read during the summer months while off school. Through this year's program, children will read and learn about animals. As a result, many libraries will be welcoming therapy dogs as part of their summer activities in the Paws to Read program. Studies have shown that children who read to dogs have a more significant increase in reading skills than children who do not. As a therapy dog, I visit libraries every month for children to read to me. My best friend Birdie Girl and I do all our visits together. With this year's program, I have received a good number of visit requests from nearby libraries. I am very, very, excited to have been invited.
