Have a reluctant reader?
Children who have difficulties reading may be self-conscious when reading aloud in front of others; however, a dog is a non-judgmental listener.
Reading to a dog provides a relaxed atmosphere, which allows participants to practice reading skills. It also builds self-esteem and confidence and provides an environment for children to connect reading with a positive association. The presence of a dog provides an opportunity for struggling readers to develop skills and discover the fun of reading.
Celebrate the end of summer and kickoff the school year with the Hesston Public Library’s Scholastic Book Fair!
