SANBORNTON — The final event in the Sanbornton Public Library Summer Reading Program will feature the special program "Reading with Rocky". This event will take place on Wednesday, August 14 at 1 p.m.
Rocky is a gentle German shepherd who was originally found as a stray in the North Carolina woods. He was adopted by Carol Varney and her husband Bob, and then traveled to New Hampshire. Rocky has been since converted into a certified therapy dog.
Making many visits to the New Hampshire Veterans' Home, Rocky is one of Therapy Dogs International's "Tail Waggin' Tutors." Many children are anxious to practice reading aloud because they feel self-conscious and embarrassed when they make mistakes. The "Tail Waggin' Tutors" program encourages reading development in children by providing a nonjudgmental, furry listener who won't laugh over a mistake or word-stumble.
Children begin to associate reading with sharing a fun time with a new canine friend, and reading is viewed in a positive light. At this event Varney will read a short story to Rocky. Then, while the group works on a fun craft, individual children will have the opportunity to take a turn reading to Rocky.
The program is geared mostly toward young children, but is free and open to all. For more information about this or other programs at the library, visit http://SPLNH.com or call 286-8288.
