A (Reading) Dog’s Tale

Written by The Reader, 27th January 2012

We're quite partial to the odd shaggy dog story now and again - and this is the tale of an adorable shaggy dog who is playing a big part in creating a Reading Revolution amongst school children in Teeside.

Each week, Audrey the dog visits Redcar Community College to sit in on children's read-aloud sessions. Teachers noticed that children often get nervous when they are asked to read aloud and so enlisted Audrey to help them relax and feel less self-conscious while reading. Needless to say, the sessions - and Audrey - have been a big success.

While of course Audrey should stay where she is, we'd quite like a 'reading' dog of our own to be a Reading Revolution mascot...
