Book reading events | July 2024

The summer holidays have landed and if you're looking for a family-friendly event to occupy the kids, I have just the event up my sleeve.

On Sunday 21 July, I'll be hosting not one but two free readings for children of all ages to hear Big Dog and the Home for Lost Hounds aloud.

There will be lots of character voices to bring Big Dog's first tale to life and there will even be some colouring-in activities for children to take away too. Here's everything you need to know. 

When and where

Ahead of the crowds arriving for the Chapelton Farmers' Market, I'll be kicking off the day at 10am in the development's Places for People show home at 149 Greenlaw Road. 

Later on in the day, I'll be pitching up in Aberdeen at Second Home Studio + Cafe for another round of storytime at 3.30pm.

About the event

Big Dog is a leggy rescue dog that's never far from mix-ups and mayhem. Wild rabbit chases, kennel escapes and an encounter with a mysterious monster, Big Dog has quite the string of tales to tell.

But all stories need to start somewhere, and his first tale sees him in search for a new home and place to fit in.

Not fitting in can be scary and this rhyming picture book is set to show children that being different is your best asset.

Ready to uncover his first story? 

About the story

“He’s a stray with no collar, his story is unknown...” The dogs at the Home for Lost Hounds are puzzled when a peculiar dog moves into the rescue shelter.

Big Dog is large, lanky and he definitely doesn't fit in. But is there a place for a dog that doesn't fit in?
