If your child is hesitant to read aloud, or needs a little extra practice to boost their skills, Loving Paws Animal Therapy dogs are here to help on Saturday, MAR 24 from 10-11 AM in our Readers’ Theater.
It might sound funny to read to a dog, but hear us out.
First of all, dogs are non-judgemental so children are less self-conscious, and most children have a natural affinity and bond with dogs.
The atmosphere at Tail Wagging Readers is beyond relaxed. In fact, the dogs often fall asleep! So, no pressure to perform.
Results also show that reading to a dog decreases stress over reading aloud in class, and ultimately can enhance self-esteem, motivate speech and build confidence!
PLUS, THE DOGGOS LOVE IT. It’s free—just register here!
