Story Tails boy reading to dog
A Literacy Program
Does your young reader need a cure for cold feet?  Would a cuddly canine help?  StoryTails to the rescue!  Research studies have shown that children whose reading scores lag behind their peers suffer from a fear of reading aloud in the classroom.  The StoryTails program pairs a registered dog and handler team with a child to provide one to one reading practice in a safe nurturing environment.  StoryTails has been an overwhelming success!  As a result, school principals from all over San Antonio have requested Storytails teams in their schools.  There's nothing like puppy dog eyes and a wagging tail to turn FEAR into reading FUN!
StoryTails is a Literacy Program and benefits children in three different school districts in San Antonio who struggle with reading skills, self esteem and confidence.  This is done on a weekly basis with assigned children for the entire school year.

Teams are also invited to different libraries in San Antonio to read to children during story hour.
