This program designed to keep the cats of the Whiskers room socialized but also help elementary school children improve their reading skills and build self confidence.
Every Saturday from 11am-12:30pm, in the Whiskers Room, elementary aged children can keep our cats company by reading to them. Each child gets 10-15 minutes to read aloud to the cats. This helps to improve the socialization of the cats as well as helps your child's reading skill. Parent(s) must be with their child at all times as well as an AAR volunteer. We have books available but you are welcome to bring your own books.
Please let us know...
If you'd like to bring your child to read to our cats, we ask that you sign up.
