Research and Studies
Since We Love Reading’s founding, we have consistently partnered with top institutions to conduct rigorous research on our read-aloud program. We strive to assess its effectiveness and to continuously improve our approach to better serve our beneficiaries
Research shows that reading fiction positively affects empathy. This year WLR conducted research designed by the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago to assess our model’s ability to increase empathy in children. The study showed positive results.
