Studies have shown that reading aloud to dogs helps put a child at ease. Kids benefit from the dogs’ patience, acceptance and comforting presence while they practice reading and build skills. Trained therapy dogs Taz and MayaRoo will be accompanied by her certified handler, Steve Williams, who has worked with Fond du Lac elementary schools and the Fond du Lac Public Library with programs similar to this one.
The Campbellsport Public Library will be holding the ‘Tales to Tails’ program on the second Monday of every month, beginning January, 2013. Children will be allowed a 15-minute session of reading a book of their choice to Taz the dog.
