Read to the Dogs

by Vicky on December 12, 2010

Our monthly Read to the Dogs program was on Saturday, and Harry Potter the Airedale Terrier was wearing his Santa hat!

What a mellow boy.  All of his regular fans were there, plus some new friends.

My teen volunteer, Gregoria, had made two displays of dog books, including one with holiday books featuring dogs.

One shy little girl had been hanging out with Harry Potter, but had resisted all requests to read to him.  I asked her if she had seen the displays of dog books, because I was pretty sure she would find something that Harry would like.

As soon as she saw the display she reached for Ivan the Terrier, by Peter Catalanotto.

“I think I could read this,” she confided.

When I went off to lunch, she was happily reading to an appreciative Harry.
