Written and illustrated by Lisa Papp, who was inspired by her local library's 'Read-to-Dogs' programme in the United States. Old Barn Books will be donating money from each copy sold at full price in the UK to the Pets As Therapy charity, which runs a similar programme here.
Madeline Finn does not like to read. Until she meets Bonnie, a library dog. Reading aloud to Bonnie isn't so bad. Bonnie teaches Madeline Finn that it's okay to go slowly, to keep trying, and to get support from a friend. A beautiful, reassuring story for all of us who struggle to read and especially those who fear reading aloud in the classroom.
