The Spring Green Community Library is proud to offer the Read With Me literacy program in collaboration with Pet Partners. Read With Me utilizes registered therapy animals trained and tested for health, safety, and temperament to help children improve reading skills. Read With Me dogs and their owner/handlers are volunteers working as a team 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 with comfort and excitement. The owner/handler provides reading support for the child, supervising reading practice to build vocabulary, increase understanding of the material, and gain fluency as a reader. Read With Me is a fantastic program that yields fantastic results!
