oct 2015 Harry and Vanilla BeanHarry Henry is a student at MVHS. He is nonverbal but loves our monthly visits. He particularly loves Vanilla

Bean, Animal Assisted Happiness’ white bantam couchon chicken. Harry wrote a poem for us.

 

Vanilla Bean (the chicken) helps me feel happy.

Vanilla Bean helps me feel calm and gentle.

Vanilla Bean helps me feel careful and in control.

I see how happy the other animals make my classmates feel, too.

I’m glad Animal Assisted Happiness comes to my school.
