L.E.A.P.

happy dogWhat is L.E.A.P.® ?reading to Rebel

Children can read to specially trained dogs and their handlers. There is no judgment, no criticism, and tons of tail wagging fun!

Literacy Education Assistance Pups – L.E.A.P.® --is composed of a dedicated group of volunteers based in Lewes, Delaware, who strive to increase the quality of reading education for the students in our community through the use of trained therapy dogs. The goal of the L.E.A.P. program is to improve the literacy skills of children, and grow their enthusiasm for reading, through the assistance of therapy dog teams as literacy mentors. The presence of a L.E.A.P. dog creates an inviting and motivating reading environment. Specifically, a L.E.A.P. dog is nonjudgmental, comfortable, and FUN! Reading sessions can take place in local schools, libraries, and other settings.

Find out more about L.E.A.P. through their website. The website includes a great kids area with different puzzles and activities.

L.E.A.P. is held in the Children's Room on Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m.   Thank you for your participation!
