  • reading with rascal

    valentine event


    saturday, feb. 2, 10:00am - noon

    Reading with Rascal is a reading program for children of elementary age. Children bring a few of their favorite books and find it fun and challenging to read to the certified therapy dogs.


    The children see the dogs are non-judgmental, so they feel comfortable reading to them. Dogs listen attentively while allowing children to read at their own pace. A child’s success in school depends on great reading skills and this is the perfect place for the child to accomplish this.


    Adults relax, and enjoy the children and dogs. Younger children listen, run around and play. We serve refreshments and have handouts for the children.

    All ages are welcome!

    Read with Rascal dogs are registered through national organizations: Alliance of Therapy Dogs, Michael’s Angel Paws, Independent Therapy Dogs, Inc., etc.

    This program is sponsored by Desert Spring United Methodist Church, however, NO CHURCH AFFILIATION IS NECESSARY to participate! Reading with Rascal is free of cost to participants. 


    Reading with Rascal has a GREAT VALENTINE TREAT for you. Desert Spring Church's own children's author, Sierra Gullickson, will be joining us for a special reading of her new book "If I Always Got My Way" and a sing-a-long of the book's song. 

    Singing, dancing, reading, and animals - how could you pack in any more fun? 


    No RSVP is necessary.
