Children’s Author Jennifer Curtis Read Aloud & Therapy Dogs (All)

January 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Come meet and read to the sweetest and calmest dogs ever! At GiGi’s Playhouse and children can read, tell a story, or just talk, pet or hug a Caring Canine Therapy Dog while listening to Children’s Author Jennifer Keats Curtis read her children’s books aloud.

Jennifer Keats Curtis’s newest release is the nonfiction River Rescue, co-authored with the Oil Spill Response Team of Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research. The longtime author has penned numerous stories about animals, including: Children’s Choice Book Award Winner Kali’s Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue and NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children After A While Crocodile: Alexa’s Diary, Moonlight Crab Count, and Maggie: Alaska’s Last Elephant. The long-time writer’s 24th book about water bugs arrives next year.

These are specialty-trained therapy dogs who are accustomed to being with children in literacy companionship programs and serving in other stress relief situations with adults and children. Readers can be in a group or one-on-one setting as best fits our participants. Volunteer handlers will remain with their dog at all times.

Please RSVP below with number of children participating. Siblings welcome.
