Studies show that reading with a therapy animal motivates reluctant readers and builds reading confidence. As one child said of the program, “It makes reading more fun.” Surveys about these programs reveal that 75% of children who attend more than three sessions want to read more frequently because of the program. “This encouraged my son to read more than he normally would.” said one parent.
