Literacy projects which involve reading to animals have met with success for children who have problems reading out loud to a group, such as classrooms. The success is believed to be because dogs offer a serene and accepting presence and allow such children to practice with them. The process melds the unconditional love of pets with the safety of reading to a beloved animal instead of peers who may be perceived by children as judgemental.
