To be advised
Does your child love reading or need more practice?
Whether children love to read or find it difficult, Pet Reading Buddy gives kids the chance to read aloud in a critique-free environment; PLUS they can have fun sounding out their words, practising intonation and telling stories to a friendly and willing audience (CATS!).
With a therapeutic and calming presence, pets can give your child the confidence they need to not only improve their reading, but to even enjoy getting lost in a story. There are countless examples of animals/therapy pets helping children to improve their social and learning skills and now the AWL want to help too!
With a shelter full of animals who're craving attention the AWL have the perfect audience to help your child in becoming a confident and happy reader.
Pet Reading Buddy is for ages 8 to 17 and runs during the school holidays.
