Read to the Dog — South Broadway Library
May 3, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 19, 2019
At South Broadway Library Every Thursday
ABC Library sponsors Read to the Dog, a program which brings calm and reassuring therapy dogs to Albuquerque libraries to sit with ABQ Kids and listen to them read. The dogs provide a wet nose, a kind ear, and a relaxing atmosphere. The kids practice reading aloud and strengthen their literacy skills.
Adults do not correct a child’s reading. Parents can take the time to look for a book or sit quietly in the Read to the Dog room.
The library provides the kids with a bookmark to keep track of how many times they have read to the dog. After the bookmark is filled out, a Certificate of Completion is awarded to the reader by one of the dogs!
Learning to read doesn’t have to be “ruff!” Sometimes you just need to “paws” and take a deep breath. There’s nothing better than a good “tail.”
