"A study at Tufts University found that students who read to dogs have better outcomes than students who read to humans.
They experienced a slight gain in reading ability and attitudes toward reading, while those who read to people experienced a
decrease on both measures. Even more noticeable, there was no attrition in the dog group, while one third of those reading
to humans failed to complete the program"- Library Journal
