Kids can increase their confidence and reading skills while reading to an adorable, attentive dog in this program sponsored by Love on a Leash.
Bring your own book or choose one at the library and read for 10 minutes to one of the dogs from Love on a Leash. Reading to dogs is a positive and non-threatening way to build confidence in reading. For ages 5-12.
6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the McClay Branch of the St. Charles County Library. Free.
For those of you who just aren't morning people, Eckerts is offering Breakfast with Santa at Dinnertime. It's exactly like Breakfast with Santa, but at dinnertime. Children can tell Santa their Christmas wishes, and Santa will have a special gift for each child.
Bring your kids and your camera to take photos with Santa at the historic and festive Kirkwood Train Station in downtown Kirkwood. On Dec. 12 there will be a special visit from live reindeer too! Free. Early arrival is recommended.
