Storytime with Dogs
At the Scarsdale Public Library in New York, therapy dogs and their owners are paired with kids for storytime activities; and media specialist Mary Hamer is bringing dogs into classrooms in Illinois, to the delight of both students and teachers.
Dogs are avid listeners. For the young readers, the lack of judgment involved allows a freer expression of words and thought vs. reading to, say, a peer or a parent. (School Library Journal)
