Doggy Tales – Read to a Dog

Does a little reluctant reader live at your house?

Doggy Tales might be what you have been looking for.

What is it?

The YPRL Doggy Tales program provides children with a non-judgemental, comforting and safe canine audience as they practise their reading.  It also encourages and develops children’s verbal communication skills and presents reading as a joyful experience.

How does it work?

 Book your child in for their own one-on-one session by either calling the branch or booking online via the website event.
