The Pawsitive Reading program is a community based literacy initiative created in partnership with St. John Ambulance and School District No. 83. As part of the Pawsitive Reading Program, children have the opportunity to choose a special book and read it aloud to a friendly dog named Moby.
Moby has been specially trained to work with children and he loves listening to stories! A child who may be hesitant to read aloud to his/her peers is typically less stressed about reading to a dog, since the dog will never judge the child’s reading ability. This program helps to increase a child’s comfort level and confidence with reading aloud.
