Children in Santa Maria practiced their reading skills with some furry friends.

Kids from ages six to twelve participated in the "Paw to Reads" event on Monday

"Love on a Leash" brought six therapy dogs to the Santa Maria Public Library for the kids to read to.

Organizers say this is a great way for kids to gain confidence in reading out loud.
