Children can read to Amos the Greyhound in January

Dec 29, 2017

Rochester — Children of all ages are invited to Read to Amos the greyhound at Rochester's Plumb Library. Amos and his handler Ms. Holly are a certified team for Therapy Dogs International. They are also part of a Children Reading to Dogs program called “Tail-Waggin’ Tutors."

Amos, an 8-year-old greyhound, is a good listener, and children can make a five-minute appointment to read to him. Reading aloud to a dog is a great way for a child to become a more confident reader. Dogs are non-judgmental, and don’t care if the child makes a mistake in reading.

Registration can be done through the Plumb Library’s Event Calendar. It is required for this program, as space is limited. Once a child attends, they are  officially a member of the Amos Book Club.

Dates for January are Saturday, January 20, and Saturday, January 27, at 12:30 p.m.
