Mom got a call the other day from a really cool columnist Brian Bethel. He writes for the Abilene online news site called “reporternews“. He was covering a story about a new local library program called “Read to a Dog Day“. It’s where dog guardians can bring their canine good citizens to the library, and have children read to them.
It’s great because both dog and children become better socialized around each other, plus it helps kids build their confidence and improve their reading skills. We have a similar program here in Ventura at Ventura County H.P. Wright Library. Mom posted something about it awhile back about therapy dogs and reading.
