Paws 'n' Tales Logo Paws 'n' Tales

Paws ‘n’ Tales is an innovative and exciting literacy initiative for children 4-8 years of age who may be experiencing reading difficulties, lack motivation or have other health issues impeding their learning…and it’s free! The Paws ‘n’ Tales program is dedicated to helping children reach their full literacy potential, to find a love of books and a passion for reading. Our dogs come in all shapes and sizes – from Kelpies to Puggles, Groodles to Goldies, but they have one thing in common – they all love kids.
