Please join us in hosting Therapy Pets of Northern Arizona volunteers (and their dogs) for a story time and read aloud to dogs. Ideal for children of reading age (6+). Depending on attendance, we will either pair children individually or have a shared story time with the dogs.

Paws to Read is a very simple concept: Children read to dogs. The dogs listen and don’t tease, laugh, or judge the child.

Paws to Read pairs Delta-registered therapy dogs and their handlers with young readers. Warm brown eyes and doggy grins make all the difference to children’s reading experiences. Our dogs love to be read to! Many children in the Flagstaff community have already benefited from the program and the opportunity to read to such non-critical, caring listeners!
