Well, fortunately, Kendall from the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library recently made a visit to GHHS to give Paws for Reading a go herself. Kendall read a wonderful book to Shylie, an 8 year old dog currently in waiting to be adopted into her fur-ever home at GHHS.
Kendall lets us know how beneficial reading to pets can be for both two and four legged animals. For the pups and cats being read to, the sound of a human voice helps to relieve tension and stress, providing a soothing presence to animals in need.
Additionally, for reluctant readers, Paws for Reading builds confidence in reading skills in children of all ages, while allowing ample time to practice in front of a non-judgemental and cuddly audience.
