Reading to a dog? That’s right! The chance to interact one-to-one with a trained dog and the dog’s handler is fun and motivational—another great reason to come to the library.
When children read aloud to dogs, their skills and confidence increase. A dog is a loving and attentive audience and children are empowered to become the teachers, learning vocabulary and comprehension as they explain the story to a new canine friend.
Reading aloud to a dog is a memorable experience. Children retain what they learn because they think and talk about it often. Even the rules of phonetics are easier to remember when pointed out by a furry paw on the page.
