Paws for reading

Read to a furry friend! Is your child shy or reluctant about reading? Do they need to gain confidence in reading aloud? Reading to a gentle and patient furry friend can help. Selwyn District Libraries are partnering with members of the Selwyn Dog Training Club to offer Paws for Reading. Book your child in to spend fifteen minutes reading to a friendly, carefully selected dog.
