Children Invited To Read to Two New Dogs at Walkertown

Adare and Chloe, Tail-Waggin' Tutors, would love to meet young students willing to practice reading aloud. Adare is a brown Australian shepherd and Chloe, a black and white border collie. Their owner Mary Donadio of Kernersville visits libraries with Chloe and Adare to help students improve reading skills. Besides learning to recognize sight words and decode longer words, students gain fluency and self-confidence when they read aloud. Additionally, supervised exposure to such friendly, obedient dogs can help offset a fear of dogs.

Visits by Tail Waggin' Tutors are fun for all involved. Every visit to the library is a chance to borrow books. Whether you like to read about dogs or another topic of interest, come browse our shelves of picture books, informational books, and chapter books. Or if you prefer to borrow an audiobook, you might try Katie Kazoo Switcheroo's Drat! You Copycat! or Doggone It!
