"A study at Tufts University found that students who read to dogs have better outcomes than students who read to humans. They experienced a slight gain in reading ability and attitudes toward reading, while those who read to people experienced a decrease on both measures. Even more noticeable, there was no attrition in the dog group, while one third of those reading to humans failed to complete the program"- Library Journal

This month's book: Billy Sure, Kid Entrepreneur by Luke Sharpe, drawings by Graham Ross 

Twelve-year-old genius inventor and budding businessman Billy Sure hosts an online contest for fellow kid innovators to share their own inventions and the winning submission will be produced by his company, Sure Things, Inc., but with so many fascinating entries, Billy wonders how he will ever choose a winner while helping other kids achieve their dreams at the same time.

A monthly book club for kids in elementary school. Sign up in the Children's Library to get a copy of the book from the library. The first 15 kids who sign up will receive a FREE paperback copy of the book, generously provided by the Friends of the Pawtucket Public Library. When the free copies have been all given out, families can borrow a copy of the book from the library. Kids can read the book on their own or with someone else. All the readers are invited to attend the Book Club for Kids program on Saturday, Oct. 8th  at 11:00am in the Children’s Caidin Room to laugh about favorite parts, play a trivia game, and make a craft.

A special thank you to the Friends of the Pawtucket Public Library for sponsoring the Book Club for Kids program.

"A study at Tufts University found that students who read to dogs have better outcomes than students who read to humans. They experienced a slight gain in reading ability and attitudes toward reading, while those who read to people experienced a decrease on both measures. Even more noticeable, there was no attrition in the dog group, while one third of those reading to humans failed to complete the program"- Library Journal

"A study at Tufts University found that students who read to dogs have better outcomes than students who read to humans. They experienced a slight gain in reading ability and attitudes toward reading, while those who read to people experienced a decrease on both measures. Even more noticeable, there was no attrition in the dog group, while one third of those reading to humans failed to complete the program"- Library Journal

DRAGONS & DREAMS ASSEMBLY (THEME – THREE STATES OF MATTER)

powerful item called the Horn of Fire, two young villagers take a
daring journey to release the dragons and save the entire kingdom!

Join us as we learn about dry ice and the changing states of matter
through the tale of "Dragons & Dreams." Wouldn't dragon's breath be an
amazing sight to see?! Well, get ready to see it ... feel it ... smell
it ... maybe even taste it! This story features interactive and
explosive experiments with dry ice, fog, smoke-filled bubbles, flying
rockets and more. Enjoy this spectacular adventure and be swept away
to a world where dragons are real and dreams come true — and where
only the most daring of people will survive to tell the tale!

"A study at Tufts University found that students who read to dogs have better outcomes than students who read to humans. They experienced a slight gain in reading ability and attitudes toward reading, while those who read to people experienced a decrease on both measures. Even more noticeable, there was no attrition in the dog group, while one third of those reading to humans failed to complete the program"- Library Journal
