A doggone good read | Photo of the day 1.2

Isabella and Georgia Saint Clair read a book to Sera the English setter as her owner Caryn Jennings listens during the READ to a Dog program Tuesday at the Bainbridge Public Library.

Isabella shared a few chapters of “Cat Warriors 3,” while her younger sister read from the classic book, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.”

The program, which helps youngsters improve their reading skills, returned to the Bainbridge branch of the Kitsap Regional Library this week after a roughly four-year hiatus. More than a dozen kids and their parents waited for a chance to spend a little quality time with their new four-legged friends.

The program returns to the Bainbridge library on the first Tuesday of every month.
