The Spring Green Community Library is extremely proud to offer the Read With Me literacy program in collaboration with Pet Partners. Read With Me utilizes registered therapy animals that have been trained and tested for health, safety, and appropriate temperament to help children improve reading and communication skills. Read With Me dogs and their owner/handlers are volunteers who work as a team, going to schools, libraries and more as reading companions for children. Read With Me dogs are attentive listeners who transform an environment by creating a relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere where a child’s anxieties are replaced by comfort and excitement. The owner/handler provides support while the child gets supervised reading practice to help build vocabulary, increase understanding of the materials and gain fluency as a reader. Read With Me is a fantastic program that yields fantastic results!
