Tag: reading to dogs
Ace, after a bit of a hiatus, got back in the saddle as a Karma Dog yesterday at the Baltimore County Public Library’s Woodland branch.
Everyone agreed — as the wooden blocks attest — he was a sizeable canine.
Yesterday was the last of the season at the Woodland Library for HEARTS (Helping Encouraging All Readers to Succeed) — one of several Karma Dogs programs.
In it, children read to dogs, who because they don’t judge, criticize and correct, help students grow more confident in their reading skills.
A new round of summer reading programs start in June at the libraries in Towson and Pikesville, and in July in Whiteford
