Wag a Tale at the Library is a program designed for children of all ages to read aloud to dogs. The dogs are trained to sit and listen to the stories. Children who have a hard time reading in front of people build confidence in this non-threatening and stress free environment. The dogs are non-judgmental and accept the stories exactly as they are read. Children can improve reading skills and boost their self-esteem to become motivated, successful readers.
