Oliver the Golden Retriever will make his triumphant return to the ACL on Tuesday, April 26th from 2:30 – 3:30 pm. Children can reserve a 10 – 15 minute one on one reading session with Oliver. Bring the book of your choice, or choose one at the library. (Oliver enjoys all types of books, not just books about dogs!) This program is a great way for children to practice reading in a fun, non-judgmental environment where it is OK to make mistakes. Even kids who are pre-readers can benefit from hanging out with Oliver and doing a conversational ‘show and tell’ session with him.
Our de facto ‘ACL Mascot’, Oliver the Dog…he loves a good story!
Space is limited and registration is required.
