Henry is a very a special dog. He helps children at school with reading, patience, and kindness. Henry is a recent graduate of the HABIC ( Human Animal Bond in Colorado) program.
We are very excited to have Henry help our Green Gables families participate this summer in the Jefferson County Library “Rock the Books” Summer Reading program. Henry wants our Green Gables families to read lot’s of minutes this summer. That’s right the whole family can participate!
Henry loves to read! He especially likes to encourage people to read even if they struggle and to keep on trying! Henry has lot’s of tips and tricks to help you read! You see Henry had a hard time learning at first , but you should see him now! Thru hard work, support, and patience Henry is a thriving mentor and teacher. He has a great story… which we will tell you ALL about very very soon.
The Jefferson County Library summer reading program will award the schools with the highest reading minutes an $800 grant. If we as a county read 40 million minutes the library will donate $500.00 to the Foothills Animal shelter to help dogs like Henry find their forever home, and make a difference!
