Paws to Read - Anya
The theory is, that by reading out loud to the dog, who doesn't judge how well the child reads, the child’s self consciousness disappears and she gains the confidence needed to become a better reader.
Readers will need to schedule a 15 minute appointment at the Youth Services Desk or by calling 231-758-3112. Open or cancelled slots will be available on a first-come, first served basis.
Mentored by Mr. Robert Bemben & Robin Ray of Levering. Young people 8yrs and up may drop-in at any time during the scheduled time. The emphasis will be on open chess play with some instruction. Players of all skill levels are welcome and are encouraged to bring chess sets from home if they have them.
