Registered therapy dogs are here to listen to children read to them in a one-to-one setting. It is fun and helps improve reading skills because the dog listens attentively and does not judge, laugh, or criticize. Registration is required for this program. Please phone 248-246-3725 or sign up in person at the Youth Services Desk for a 20-minute time slot.
