This winter, the Animal Humane Society hosts the Animal Ambassadors Reading Fun (AARF) program, in which children read to a registered therapy animal. These events occur on February 7 and 21, 2010, and no registration is necessary.

Animals provide a non-judgmental opportunity for children to practice and improve their reading skills--a perfect partnership. Each AARF team follows the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) training program to provide a calm audience to which the children naturally respond.

Additionally, children who read will receive a free book (while supplies last).

For more info: call the Animal Humane Society at 763-489-2220 or visit
