Reluctant Reader Help Project

This is a very exciting Fall Programming season highlighted by Time With Tucker this past Saturday when Tucker, a very well behaved and compassionate dog, listened to children read. Tucker has no opinion only love, appreciation and a wagging tail, for those who read to him. Therein is the secret, Tucker allows young minds to work as hard as they can without the fear of making mistakes or criticism. It works Tucker is a great tutor..
