Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

I would spend my free hours between library visits with my nose buried in a book, and at night, if it was past my bedtime, burrowed under the covers with a flashlight, reading.  It’s no wonder I decided at an early age that I wanted to become a writer.  To me, books were magic, and I wanted to be part o that magic.

Event Date: 
Oct 8 2013 - 4:00pm

Kids are invited to share reading with Ellie, a “Reading Loving Therapy Dog! Kids choose a favorite short book or story and read aloud to Ellie for about 5 minutes.  Kids not yet reading independently are welcome to read to the dogs and the group with the help of their adult caregiver.  Both the audience and Ellie love the pictures, so even non-readers can hold up the book to show the Illustrations to everyone!  To help chil dren feel confident in their reading, they should plan to read from a favorite familiar story.  Choose a book from the Library or from home.
