Did you know? Reading to dogs has been proven to help children develop their reading skills and build self-confidence through both the calming effect of the dogs' presence and the fact that the dog will listen to the children read without being judgement or criticism. Most importantly, it inspires children to have fun and enjoy the experience of reading!
We'd like to start up a fortnightly Paws and Read programme here at Brecon Library with our very own Library dog Mae this autumn. Come and meet Helen and Mae, find out a little more information about Paws and Read, the benefits, and if it's the right fit for you and your child! More stories
