Have a reluctant reader?
Children who have difficulties reading may be self-conscious when reading aloud in front of others; however, a dog is a non-judgmental listener.
Reading to a dog provides a relaxed atmosphere, which allows participants to practice reading skills. It also builds self-esteem and confidence and provides an environment for children to connect reading with a positive association. The presence of a dog provides an opportunity for struggling readers to develop skills and discover the fun of reading.
