Therapy Dog Storytime with Jordie

Spring Township



Every other First Saturday

Benefits of Therapy Dog Storytimes

The results of numerous studies are overwhelming, having your child read to a therapy dog brings many benefits. Here are just 5 reasons children should read to our fur friends:

- Dogs are non-judgemental so children are less self-conscious

- Most children have a natural affinity and bond with dogs

- Children are allowed to improve their reading skills in a fun relaxed atmosphere

- Results show that it decreases stress over reading aloud in class

- It can enhance self-esteem, motivate speech and build confidence

Your little ones are welcome to drop in to read to our wonderful dogs each Saturday from 11 AM to 12 PM and the 3rd Tuesday from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Your pre-readers are welcome to join as well, they may discuss their favorite books from memory or using illustrations. No registration is required and it is a completely free service that we offer our community.
