A couple of therapy dogs in Pawtucket are helping kids learn to read.

Tinkerbell and her sister Wendy are the city's library storybook dogs.

They dress up as characters from books that the librarian is reading, and the kids try to guess what stories they are from.

It's also to give kids the confidence to read out loud because the kids feel comfortable reading to the dogs.
