Read to a Dog
Swampscott Public Library, Saturday, December 10 at 11am
11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Read to Tundra our reading education assistance dog. Tundra, a certified therapy dog, will be accompanied by his owner Pamela Wall who is volunteering her time for the program.  There will be four 15-minuted slots for reading. Registration is required for this program and will begin on December 1.
Why read to a dog?
 Animals are ideal reading companions because they:
* listen attentively                                              * ​do not judge, laugh or criticize
* allow children to proceed at their own pace    * are less intimidating than peers
When a dog is "listening" fear of failure is removed allowing a child to learn more effectively. The dog's handler is a skilled facilitator who provides subtle support without creating performance pressure in the child. (added from Eventkeeper)
