Read to Tucker
Independent readers of all ages can register for a 15 min time slot to read aloud to Tucker, between 4:30 and 5:30 pm on the following Thursdays: October 12th, October 19th, November 9th, November 16th, November 30th and December 28th in the children’s story hour room. Tucker is a 4 1/2 yr old standard poodle who lives with his poodle sisters and human parents in Newtown. Tucker was rescued after undergoing major throat surgery when he was a puppy so he needs to wear a gentle leader instead of a regular dog collar. Tucker’s mom, Jane Hellman, has spent many years bringing her poodles to visit with the residents of Lockwood Lodge and Bethel Health Care. Now that he is a certified therapy dog, Tucker is ready for his new adventure as a reading buddy for children. Please indicate your time preference next to your child’s name when you register: 4:30-4:45/4:45-5:00/5:00-5:15/5:15-5:30.
