Pig the Pug’s Global Reading Adventures

We have had so much fun taking our two Pig the Pugs home to read to this year for #ReadingIsFun that I thought the students in Mrs Hembree’s library in Seattle might enjoy doing this too! Mrs Hembree was surprised to meet Pig the Pug and very interested to hear about how we take him home to read to each night…

Mrs Hembree decided that Pig the Pug would be perfect for her Year 3 students. She bought a suitcase for their Pig the Pug to travel home in each night and set up guidelines like ours for her students to ensure Pig the Pug enjoys a story is and returned each day.

I was SO excited when I returned home to Melbourne to see that the Year 3 students have started #CougarRidgeReads with Pig the Pug!

Thanks to one of the students, Pig the Pug has a fancy pillow to sit on as he is read to…

and he is enjoying listening to lots of stories with his new American friends….

It makes my teacher librarian heart sing to see students in Melbourne, Australia and Seattle, WA having fun reading to Pig the Pug and sharing their books online at #ReadingIsFun and #CRReads. Thank you Mrs Hembree  and Year 3 for joining in…happy reading!

  1. Dear Miss Y,
    Our students and parents are having a fantastic time with Pig the Pug! He’s read with many dogs, had hot cocoa for breakfast and read lots and lots of stories!
    Thank you so much!

  2. Hi Mrs Hembree,

    Pig the Pug is having a fabulous time with your Third Graders and their families!! He is very lucky listening to lots of stories that he wouldn’t read here in Australia. We are going to be reading his new book ‘Pig the Elf’ very soon…

    Happy reading!

    Miss Y 🙂

  3. Dear Miss Y,

    I was so happy to read that Pig the Pug is having an amazing time with his new friends. Am pretty sure from reading your post he is getting looked after better than the queen.
    What’s even more special is he is receiving gifts. Now that is one very, very special pug.

    Thank you and Mrs Hembree for sharing Pig the Pug’s special adventures.

    Take care Miss Y,


  4. Hi AA,

    I’m thrilled that Pig the Pug is now helping to make reading fun in two schools! He is becoming a ‘Reading Rock Star’. I’m enjoying seeing the books being read to him by the students at Mrs Hembree’s library.

    Happy reading!

    Miss Y 🙂
