Photo: from the Paws To Read program that was running for the past 12 weeks at the Halton Hills Christian School with two dogs on the job... Summer in the foreground and little Gracie in back. The school has requested  the dogs return in the Fall since they  are making a difference to their students who are reluctant readers.

One of our volunteers has been at the Georgetown library providing sessions of the Paws To Read program. We wanted to share a photo of Dudley the dog working with one of the children. I saw this child running into the library last week with book in hand because he knew Dudley would be waiting for him. These are the moments that prove success of this unique program.

The reading program has also been running since March at the Christian Reformed School with equally good responses from the children and teachers there.

So, if you know of any parents whose children lack confidence in their literacy skills and have difficulty reading please refer them to this program and to our website at
