Reading to our animals helps to lower stress levels, calm and soothe especially fearful animals as well as improve their human-animal interactions by providing them with consistent positive interactions with people. Not only does this increase the chances of our animals being adopted it also boosts the confidence of the readers. Kids who participate will practice reading comprehension and fluency skills.
