Maddie in the News

I thought I'd put Maddie's newspaper picture in a new thread. My husband scanned a couple of the pictures from several newspapers from last Thursday. Newspaper print doesn't make very good quality pictures when scanned, but here are a few pics and the brief article. He blocked out my last name, as he didn't think it was a good idea to put it on the internet. I had no idea the lady with the fancy camera in the classroom was a photographer/reporter. I just thought she was a parent until she introduced herself after the class. I would have put on a little make-up had I known! The schools had requested therapy dogs from ARF to encourage children to read to their pets. Here are some of the pictures taken of our day in a second grade class for Read Across America week.

Hooray Maddie (and Jeanne, of course)!! I am all for anything that encourages children (and adults) to read. I am a voracious reader. I cannot imagine my life without books! Maddie is a wonderful ambassador for literacy.

how wonderful that Maddie was there!
I love it, and how nice all the kids'll go home and read to their pets.

Thanks for sharing! It warms my heart to see a dog being a good influence on the kids! And, you, too, of course!

Thanks for making the effort to scan and share, Jeanne. Once again, an extremely worthwhile cause. I would love a video of Maddie fluffing her blanket!!
