Kids, Dogs and Books Special Event

There's a lot of publicity about the lack of interest in books of kids of all ages. Of course there are the exceptions, and many children sit contentedly in their room or in a corner of Mum and Dad's lounge room, avidly reading their favourite book. A lot of kids even have a list of their favourite authors, which of course makes it somewhat easy for family members to know what to buy for Christmas or birthdays.

Which makes this upcoming event of special interest to not only parents, but also to the kids themselves. This year, there's going to be a Free Childrens Event at Rainy Day Books in the Basin.

Canine Comprehension will be holding a Reading Corner for Dogs, Kids and Books on Sunday 20th December between 11am and 2pm. Canine Comprehension dogs are highly trained literacy dogs. Kids can sit, relax and read their chosen books in a safe, happy environment. Story times, demonstrations as well as a very special item, a bagpiper, will be playing Christmas tunes.

Contact Meryll at Rainy Day Books at (03) 9762 0862 or Sarah (Canine Comprehension) at 0421 490 188.

Don't miss out on this special event which will allow children the opportunity to mingle with the Canine Comprehension dogs and to enjoy the pleasures of reading. The benefits from reading and understanding the stories as well as being able to retell the stories to others, enhances the life of anyone, and moreso kids.
