Paws for Reading

Tuesday 11th February 2020
(Multiple Dates Between Tuesday 11th February 2020 & Tuesday 8th December 2020)

Reading with Dogs!

Bring a favourite book to read or choose one in the Library.  Develop reading confidence while reading with Dogs.

Great for children struggling with reading, children who need to build reading confidence and children with Dyslexia.

Why dogs? I hear you ask.  Dogs don't judge, they won't interrupt the flow of reading even when there is a mistake, Dogs are great listeners and can reduce stress, embarrassment and anxiety of reading to others.

Three tips for children from the dogs:

  • Choose an easy book to read with me
  • We love to be patted while you read to us
  • I might look sleepy but that's how I listen
