For readers grades 1 thru 5. At the conclusion of the reading session, each child gets a custom sticker, a bookmark with that dog’s picture on it and a paw print handstamp. With consent, we email a digital photo of the child with their Reading Buddy to the parent or the guardian. We visit monthly from October through April. Depending on the library’s size, we assign 1-5 teams to the site. On a reading night, 4-16 children may read to a dog.
