What is "Read To a Four-Legged Listener?"

All across the country, kids are reading to dogs.
These friendly listeners encourage kids
to relax and enjoy the activity of reading out loud.
Now, kids in Door County can participate by reading at the Library too.
 

Door County canine listeners are Amos, Nellie,
Junior, Barley, and Igloo,  who are
registered Therapy Dogs.
Children can bring their own book,
or choose one at the library.
They sit with the dog and read aloud
(or tell the story if they are pre-readers)
for 15 minutes.

Stress-reducing Bonus: The dogs love to be                   petted while they listen;
which is great, because petting dogs
is relaxing to the petter too.
