About Us

BBF is a free Reading program located in Hancock County , Indiana.   We take animals into schools, libraries, stores, etc. and give children the opportunity to work on their reading skills.  Animals provide a non-judgmental, non-threatening audience while giving the child their full attention.  A child will often read to an animal before they will will read to an adult. An animal will never tell then they are wrong or correct them.  The animal provides a calm, relaxed atmosphere to read in.  Reading to an animal also increases confidence in all children who participate.
