About the event
The Urban Hound, believes that reading can bring joy and wonder to our lives and that every child
deserves to be able to read and to see themselves in the books they read. Family support is critical to
this lifelong journey.
You may ask yourself, “What does a dog store have to do with reading?”. Well, we
know that dogs reduce stress and they happen to be good listeners. Reading to a dog may improve
reading abilities and can increase a child’s self-esteem and confidence in their reading. We also know
that the more you read, the better you get at it. For some kids, reading aloud can be stressful and
overwhelming. A calm dog can be the perfect captivated audience for practice.
The Urban Hound is partnering with The Center for Literacy and Learning and Louisiana Reads! to offer
an engaging way for your children to practice the essentials needed to strengthen their reading skills.
Our goal is to help bridge the gap between home and school and encourage families to read more and
build their home libraries.
Ruby, the Vizsla loves to be read to and will be hanging around for some sweet pets and kisses. Enjoy
reading time and fun literacy games then leave with a free book to read with your family. Stick around
Perkins Rowe after the event for Santa Rocks the Rowe! It's sure to be a blast!
Come join us for an afternoon of fun games that will help your kids practice their reading skills and enjoy
some time with Ruby the Vizsla!
