B.A.R.K.s, Books and Reading for Kids, is an opportunity for young readers at Horizon Books.
This program was created by 17-year old Matt Jacobs, based on research that shows that reading to dogs has been proven to significantly improve a young reader’s words per minute as well as his or her love for reading.
With B.A.R.K.s, kids from K – 3rd grade can read to a trained therapy dog. Each reader is given a 15 minute slot to read to Lacey, an 8 year old Golden Retriever.
If you would like your kindergarten through 3rd grade child to get a chance to read to Lacey, please call Horizon Books at 231.946.7290 to sign up for a 15 minute slot between 10-10:30am.
