Kindergarteners and first graders were treated to a special visit during their library class on Thursday, May 19. Tails That Teach Executive Director Lisa Wiehebrink joined students to share her book "Love Me Gently" with the classes.
"Love Me Gently" is a story about the adventures of a young boy learning positive interactions with his puppy. The story teaches valuable life lessons on kindness, compassion, and empathy. Each child in kindergarten and first grade was thrilled to receive a copy to share with families and friends.
