This term we are going to have some fun reading picture books to one of our favourite picture book characters…Pig the Pug

You can have the chance to take Pig the Pug home and have fun reading aloud one of your favourite picture books to him (Using expression and doing the voices!). Take a photo of you with Pig the Pug and your book to add to our slideshow and please include some information about your book and/or photo.


Pig the Pug has become quite a ‘Reading Rockstar’ at our school over the past two terms! He went home with 86 students in Term Two and 67 students in Term Three. Thank you for reading a picture book to Pig the Pug, sharing your photos and comments with us and making #ReadingIsFun a huge success!

  18. Thank you for your great comments 3MC!

    I’m so glad to hear that you think taking Pig the Pug home to read to him is a great idea. I really didn’t expect it to be so popular!

    I’m also glad that you enjoy looking at the photos of Pig the Pug visiting people and listening to stories. I’m getting a bit jealous and wish I was the one being taken home and read to by people!

    Xavier and Pig the Pug were looking very comfy reading on the couch!

    I hope more people in 3MC will be lucky and get their name chosen from our raffle box (and I’m pleased people think that it’s a fair way to choose people).

    Happy reading!

    Miss Y 🙂

    Pig the Pug is having a wonderful time visiting student’s homes and listening to lots of different stories….I’m getting VERY jealous!!

    Miss Y 🙂

  27. Dear Miss Y,
    I will want to take you home to read to so I can show you how many books I’ve got. Pig the Pug should come too.
    Pig the pug is more than welcome to come any time.
    (#Iamjoking) (he can came if Pig the Pug wants to)
    from Lucia!!!!

  28. Hi Lucia,

    You are very lucky to have your own “Lucia Library” at your house! Do you keep all of your books organised in a special bookcase?With all of the people wanting to take Pig the Pug home, he might be visiting people all year!

    Miss Y 🙂

  29. Dear Miss Y,
    Well yes!! and all tidy (all the time).
    I love having my own library I read every morning (even school nights).
    I read loads of books such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the 65 storey tree house.

  30. Dear Miss Y,
    I really want to take Pig the Pug home so I can read with him.
    from Anthony 2b

  31. I think you would great make a great teacher librarian, Lucia!

    I’m very impressed that your book shelf is so tidy all the time. It took me ages to do lots of shelving in our library after school this afternoon. It was looking very tidy when I left school, but it won’t last long.

    I read every night before I go to sleep.

    Miss Y 🙂

  32. Hi Anthony,

    Come and see me in the library and we will add your name.

    Miss Y 🙂

  33. Dear Miss Y
    Hope I get Pig the Pug. Thanks for your comments😛 #happy ☺ reading Miss Y See you tomorrow at library.

  39. Hi Kaleb,

    Pig the Pug is fun and he is also cheeky, sneaky and naughty!

    Pig the Pug has had lots of fun visiting people’s houses and being read to each night…he is becoming a celebrity!

    Miss Y 🙂

  40. Hi Miss Y,

    #readingisfun when you get to read the LRC blog and see students enjoying their reading.

    It was so lovely to see students from 3O reading with Pig the Pug. I even got to see some past Prep Delicious faces which was lovely.

    I wonder if the teachers will be allowed to put their name down for Pig the Pug…

    Happy reading.
    Mrs O’Malley

  41. Hi Mrs O,

    Thank you for dropping by to read our #ReadingIsFun page.

    It has been a delight seeing how excited students are when I deliver Pig the Pug to them each day. He has been to 70 homes so far this term. I love receiving emails each night to see what book each person has chosen to read to Pig the Pug. I love the creative photos too!

    I was only going to send Pig the Pug home this term BUT he is so popular we will continue next term. At the beginning of Term 3 (after our Pig the Pugs have a holiday and a bath), students can get a raffle ticket for a chance to take Pig the Pug home and teachers are more than welcome to join in too!!


    Miss Y 🙂

  42. Hi Miss Y,
    I just finished the second book of the Weirdo series so far and I am looking forward to reading the others!
    I was wondering who’s your favourite author? Really I can’t choose out of Tania Ingram or Mo Williams but I like them! Let me know as soon as possible.
    Thanks, Antonia 😀

  43. Hi Antonia,

    The Weirdo series by Anh Doh is very popular in our library! You have four more books in the series to look forward to reading 🙂

    It’s impossible for me to choose a favourite author! I have SO many favourite authors and illustrators and I like them all for different reasons…

    Happy reading!

    Miss Y 🙂

  44. Dear Miss Y
