Corgi Cuteness: Corgis Love to Read Too

From Shelf Awareness Pro e-newsletter:

Cool Idea of the Day: Reading Aloud with Corgis

A pair of calming canines are helping kids wolf down books. Face in a Book bookstore, El Dorado Hills, Calif., lets young readers practice reading aloud to Tanner and Emma, a pair of licensed therapy corgis.

“They’re not going to give you any negative feedback, they’re going to look at you and be cute and soft and fuzzy and that’s a great safe place for kids,” said store owner Tina Ferguson. “Being able to be in a non-judgmental, safe environment has really helped them to open up to reading out loud, but also reading other types of books.”

For the full story, and an adorable video, check out CBS Sacramento’s website. The next Read to the Dogs event takes place Sunday, July 26, 10-11 a.m. Keep track of all future corgi visits on Face in a Book’s events page.
