“When I was 4 years old, and they came to the library talking about their program, I was terrified of dogs then,” said student Dylan Blount.

“I would watch TV and dogs would always be biting people and my cousin had a dog and every time I moved, it would chase me.”

Blount is now in sixth grade and said reading to Elle helped him overcome his fear of dogs and learn not to judge people, or animals, by the way they look. WRAL.com

"Pit bulls have a reputation for being aggressive, but it's not unusual to find Elle, a 5-year-old pit bull, cuddling up to elementary school children for story time. 

In fact, she does it regularly. Elle is a therapy dog at an elementary and a middle school in North Carolina. With help from her owner, Leah Brewer, 42, Elle started a reading program called “Tail Wagging Tales” to help students practice reading and strengthen confidence." TODAY.com
