Event description

Description

Children in grades 1-8 who are able to read at any level are invited to read to our therapy horses at Milestones during the summer months. “Horse Tales” will offer children the opportunity to improve their reading skills while also assisting our horses through socialization and human interaction. Animals find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing.


Many children struggle with reading aloud at school and often feel reluctant to practice at home with a parent. An animal is a completely non-judgmental listener. Many students have shown remarkable improvement in their reading skills and feel more confident and relaxed while reading after participating in similar programs.


In order to participate, children must register in advance (registration will be taken up to 5:00pm the day before Horse Tales is scheduled). Participating readers will receive a free bookmark from Milestones and a book from the Friends of the Kenton County Public Library. Readers may also bring a book with them from home or stop by their local library.


Horse Tales is being offered in collaboration with the Durr Branch of the Kenton County Public Library.
