Good Reads:

As a pet visitation therapy dog, Tavish visits several libraries where children read to him to build their confidence and literacy skills. He’s heard and seen a LOT of children’s books. And because Team Tavish hears them too, we’ve compiled a list of several that appeal to the Intrepid Pup mindset and are charmingly written and beautifully illustrated…in other words, storybooks we don’t mind listening to time and time again:

    • Gaspard and Lisa at the Museum by Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben
    • Hannah’s Collection by Marthe Jocelyn
    • Miss Renée’s Mice by Elizabeth Stokes Hoffman
    • Miss Renée’s Mice Go to an Exhibition by Elizabeth Stokes Hoffman
    • One-Dog Canoe by Mary Casanova
