Read to the Reindeer

We took a break from packing to participate in the Stanislaus County Library's "Read to the Reindeer" program.  This was a special holiday edition of their regular Read to the Dog program which Charlie and I started a year ago.  Children sign up for a 20 minute session to read to the dog.  It builds confidence in reading and develops social skills and animal appreciation.

Charlie wore his elf hat in and out, but I didn't keep it on his head during the sessions.  He really didn't like the hat, but he was a good sport.
