Raine with some excited readers!

Research conducted at UC Davis, shows that children who read to pets improve their reading skills & self-esteem while fostering a positive attitude. Those who are reluctant readers or face reading challenges build their self confidence reading to a non-judgmental animal partner. Children also developed an appreciation for animals, learning to overcome their uneasiness or fears.
