Program lets kids read tales to listeners with tails


SETAUKET - A special program lets kids practice their reading skills on some excellent listeners who are all ears.

The Doggie Reading Club makes stops at local libraries and schools. Children are invited to read aloud to therapy dogs one-on-one.

The dogs are screened and certified as safe for children. They wear harnesses that kids put written notes into, telling about their reading experiences.
