Therapy dog helps kids read

MONTICELLO, NY — Does your child need practice with reading? Do they love animals? The E.B. Crawford Library is bringing reading practice and animals together in a new program called “Tales with Tai.” 

Tai is a therapy dog who will visit the library once a month, and he loves to hear stories. Children grades K through five can sign up to take turns reading their favorite books to Tai. 

The first session will be April 19 at 4 p.m. Children in Kindergarten through second grade will read from 4 to 4:30 and children grades three to five will read from 4:30 to 5 p.m.

This is a free program, but space is limited, so registration is required. Call 845/794-4660, ext. 9. For more information visit
