  • Paws 'n' Tales- Children's Reading Programme

    Studies show that children who regularly practice reading aloud improve their fluency, vocabulary and expression. Unfortunately, children who are struggling are sometimes reluctant and worry about being judged by parents, teachers or their classmates. Reading to a dog - 'our friendly four-legged friend' gives a fun and judgement-free audience!

    The Paws ‘n’ Tales Children’s Reading Program is held at Narellan Library. The library offers this program two afternoons a week- Thursdays with Teddy Bear and Fridays with Flynn.

    The goals of the Paw ‘n’ Tales are to:

    • Increase children’s reading confidence

    • Increase love of reading, books and libraries

    • Improve the literacy and reading skills

    • Provide an opportunity for oral reading

    Dogs provide a calm presence allowing your child to develop skills and confidence in a safe and supportive environment. Click here to view to Term 2 Bulletin.
