Paws for stories is a program for children aged 7 to 10. It is run in partnership with the St. John's Ambulance Therapy Dog Program. In this program, a certified, friendly therapy dog sits with a child to help the child practise reading aloud. This is a great program for motivating young people who are hesitant or anxious about reading. 

Children are welcome to sign up for a maximum of four sessions total throughout the program series. Each session will last roughly 10 minutes.

Registration details:

  • When completing your registration, please include your child's first and last name instead of your own
  • If you wish to bring another child, please create a separate registration
