The Pleasure of Reading With a Pet

Many of us know the feeling of being comforted by the simple acceptance of a pet, especially as children. That’s why librarians across Philadelphia have begun to offer programming where children who would normally be too nervous to read aloud can practice reading their reading aloud to loving dogs. With less pressure to perform, many children find reading with a dog allows them to become relaxed and enjoy the process of reading aloud.
