Read with Rufus

Come by and read to Rufus the therapy dog Mondays from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. Rufus is a 12 year old golden-doodle (golden retriever and standard poodle mix) with a calm personality that loves being read to.

Did you know that kids will often spend more time reading to a dog than they would alone, giving them a greater sense of accomplishment for creating a story book or a chapter? Children are more relaxed when reading with dogs because they have no fear of being corrected which boosts their confidence. Look how cute this floofer is.
