Pages and Paws–This also meets every second Tuesday of the month, from 5-6 pm. Kids can come read to a special pet of the month. This is a great way for struggling readers to gain confidence and practice their reading skills, and it’s also a way to introduce your child to different animals! In the past we have been visited by dogs, cats, and even a bunny!
