A few Saturday mornings ago I woke up to gray skies and misty rain. The kind of annoying moisture-filled air that frizzes my hair and there is nothing I can do to stop it. It was the kind of morning that makes you want to crawl back in bed and pull the covers over your head until the sun decides to come out. (Although lately that’s every morning for me.)
Wondering if you read that right? Yep, a dog and a library. The City of Fairfax Library to be exact. They have a program every other Saturday and some Tuesdays where kids can come and read to a dog. If you live in the area you can check out information about it and sign up here.
It’s a great program. My daughter read three books to Rufus, the dog on this particular day, including a book about narwhals. Rufus sometimes sat and listened as Ella stroked his back. Periodically he’d get up and circle around, nudging anyone else nearby to make sure everyone around was also listening and probably also just to get a few more scratches behind his ears.
