Learning to read isn't always easy. Reading to dogs can help!
• Reading aloud can feel daunting to some children, so reading to a dog who doesn't judge them is comforting and a great way to practice.
• Reading to dogs is a fun experience so children look forward to practicing reading rather than thinking of it as a solitary exercise.
• Reading to a dog and petting dogs relieves stress and helps to calm nervous readers.
