Paws to Read

Tuesday, February 18 — Friday, February 21
11am — 12pm

New York Therapy Animals, Inc. joins MOD for February's Paws to Read. Bring your child to the Museum for the opportunity to read aloud alongside therapy dog teams, encouraging young readers. Your child will sit with a group and take turns reading pages from stories about sled dogs to arctic exploration. With books with reading levels for all ages, Paws to Read is sure to be memorable for the whole family!

Please arrive on time to ensure your child can participate in a group.

Plan a visit for your dog at the AKC CANINE RETREAT!

Out of courtesy to our neighbors, only service dogs and invited demonstration dogs are allowed in the museum.
