Read, Write, Grow, Flourish

Blueberry Bear Tales

Kong and I are conducting an author visit at a school for special needs.

Hello, and welcome to My Classroom!

I would love to have the opportunity to meet your class, read my Blueberry Bear book(s), share my story, and introduce to the class one of my therapy dogs, Suki or Kong.

I adopted Suki and Kong several months after my first therapy dog Jamie passed away. They both follow in Jamie's pawprints as therapy dogs and accompany me at book events, author visits, and assisted therapy dog visits.



Jamie and a reading buddy

A therapy dog's presence creates a calm environment, which lowers the reader's stress levels. Therapy dogs are also non-judgmental, which helps readers build up their self-esteem to read out loud.

I must say, therapy dogs are pawtastic listeners!

Did you know half of the 4.5 million dog bites per year are pediatric dog bites?

Children who experience a dog bite can develop PTSD.

This common reaction in children can bring on emotional, academic, social, and behavioral problems.

This presentation focuses on how to safely approach a dog.
