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 them 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.
