Paws to Read to Moi, If You Please
Click to Bigify Blurb
As you can see from this excerpt from the MPL Bookmark newsletter (June/July 2011), the Paws to Read! program is coming to my Library on June 4, July 9, and July 30, 2011 (11 a.m. to Noon). Kids from grades K-6 read to a slobberdog or possibly another animal. That's a bit vague. Would this "other animal" be feline, perhaps?
Slobberdogs are Great Listeners, But Why Should They Have All the Fun?
Fine Literature Requires a Sophisticated Audience
Reading to slobberdogs is great fun, but you have to read at their levels, which, from our children's collection, would be the earliest "ready-to-read" books or possibly preschool. For some slobberdogs (you know who you are), board books would be a challenge. I, on the other paw, am prepared to hear the literary classics. Make with the Melville! Tolstoy is a snap! Even Chaucer presents no problems for moi.
Of course, it may be difficult to work this into my busy schedule, what with all the roving reporting I am doing for the Library. Well, I'll try to be there, but if not, then pull up a slobberdog and read-to! You'll all have a wonderful time.

P.S. Paws to Read is all about friends sharing great reading. Speaking of friends, here are James Taylor and Carole King performing "You've Got a Friend" (Nov. 1971 television performance).
