Join Lucky the Golden Retriever for R.E.A.D. story time

R.E.A.D. dogs are nationally certified therapy dogs from Intermountain Therapy Animals. They also have additional training and licensing as reading companions to promote literacy and help children find new ways of making reading fun. Though they can’t read they are very attentive and non-judgmental listeners when a child is reading a book to them. Currently Intermountain Therapy animals have licensed over 1300 R.E.A.D. teams in 48 states (the Dakotas are the only two where they do not have teams) and Canada, Poland, Japan, Belgium and Israel.
A personal note: today's post is dedicated to the memory of Sally Frances Haws, a Golden Retriever so special she merited a middle name.
