Therapy dogs provide a safe, non-judgmental audience for kids to practice their reading out loud. Bring a book you've been working on or choose one of ours. Read to one of our patient, furry friends provided by Therapy Dogs Boulder County. This program is appropriate for ages 4-12. Space is limited; registration is required. On the day of the event, registered participants will sign up for a 5-15 minute session during the program on a first come, first served basis.
