I loved my first day as a “Read to Me Dog.” I got to meet several kids from schools my human mom has worked at. I was a little bit nervous, but mom says I really calmed down once the kids started to rad to me. I heard stories about Dora the Explorer and Blues Clues. I even got to listen to a story read in English and Spanish. The readers were from a dual language school. During half their school day they are taught in Spanish and the other half they are taught in English. Dogs speak a universal language of love.
One of my favorite books was called Saving Audie: A Pit Bull Puppy Gets a Second Chance. The kids that picked the book were quite young. I think they thought I’d enjoy a book with a dog on the cover. Mom helped them read the pictures of the book. She said reading the pictures was one way to read a book.
I could connect with many parts of the book. Audie was a recused dog just like me. He found a special home just like I did. He worked hard and even passed his AKA Canine Good Citizen test like I did in February. But the most coincidental thing about the book was that Audie likes to lay in the grass (see my blog header) and I found out about other dogs that BLOG! (See Vick Dog Blog )
The library is a fun place. I can’t wait to visit again next week. The library has a A LOT of books – just like my human mom!
Have you ever read a book that you could make connection to? I’d love to hear about it.
